John McCain Prepares Massive Economic Plan... Does He Know That He Lost?
We'll admit, we have some sympathy for the former Republican leadership and George W. Bush with regards to the "John McCain situation." It was kind of fun for us communists to see John McCain (occasionally, arbitrarily) challenge the Bush administration on a handful of issues over the years, but now that he's doing the same thing to Obama, and after his election behavior... the guy's just annoying, right? All he likes to do is annoy everyone. Hovering. It's creepy. And CURSE the person who ever introduced him toTwitter, jesus... so what unnecessary stand is he taking now for the sole purpose of annoying everyone? Sam Stein with the scoop: "Sen. John McCain is putting together a major economic plan that will be structured, in some ways, off of Newt Gingrich's famous Contract With America." Eh, needs more Reagan.
The Huffington Post "obtained" a secret e-mail that McCain's chief of staff had sent to one outside adviser, so it's impossible to tell who leaked this e-mail to HuffPo:
In an email obtained by the Huffington Post, the Arizona Republican's chief of staff, Marc Buse, asked an outside adviser for help with a "ten principles" program that the senator could use as a "definitive" platform.
"We are looking for some guidance on a definitive plan (aka contract with america style) on the economy...principles," writes Buse. "Ten principles that JSM could point to on what MUST BE DONE to address the problems our nation faces."
Buse doesn't offer specific suggestions of his own, save "NO TAX INCREASES."
Sounds like a real motherfucker, HEHNGNN? We like the "ten" motif, too. Nice round number. "Ten," this is John McCain's new thing. Every day he goes on his Twitter robot machine and slowly unveils a "TOP TEN PORKIEST PROJECTS" list, and once it's finished, he starts on the next day's list until CSI comes on. This is the legislative equivalent of "trolling," and good god, someone please get this troll some Lexapro.
Oh hey look, he's just finished the latest list, let's catch a bit of the action:
So it's fair to presume that his New Ten-Point Contract With America once unveiled will just be a printout of random six-figure dollar amounts, each pegged to a wacky-sounding combination of proper nouns, and it will simply print and print and print while The Swedish Model looms on the horizon.
