Trusty Surrogate John McCain Talks About All That 'Foreign Money' Funding Romney Campaign
His lordship St. John McCain is all over the place this week, yelling about popcorn and pigs, on Twitter, demanding leak investigations, whining about how Obama never called him, and, well, how about a little rant about campaign finance now to top off the week? What does McCain, a top Mitt Romney surrogate, think about Sheldon Adelson, the guy footing the bill for Mitt Romney this year? "Much of Mr. Adelson's casino profits that go to him come from his casino in Macau, which says that obviously, maybe in a roundabout wayforeign money is coming into an American political campaign." Ha ha, he just suggested that Romney's candidacy is built on foreign money. How does John McCain have so few friends? Sorry, he wasn't finished: "...We have to have a limit on the flow of money andcorporations are not people." Ohhhhhhhh Walnuts!
What's funny is that he bothers to crap on Romney's top money person, and he doesn't even seem to be right? This is not one of those "he accidentally spoke the truth" gaffes -- Sheldon Adelson, an American, makes money on overseas investments. That is not "foreign money," as in foreign individuals or government agents making the donations. (Correct us if we are wrong, which never happens.)
McCain will probably be ordered to "clarify" this within the next hour or so. He'll explain that he only meant to say Mitt Romney is an agent of the Communist Chinese government and that he hopes this puts the controversy to bed.
