Walnuts McCain Cracks Some Jokes on Letterman

Walnuts

While Obama and Clinton continue to rend the Democratic Party into shreds, GOP candidate John McCain charms the public with an appearance trading one-liners with David Letterman on last night's Late Show.

Said Letterman: "Maybe a little too funny."

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. McCain delivers his jokes and speeches in exactly the same way.

  2. While Hillary and Obama continue their endless pissing match, say hello to your new president.

  3. "Rend the Democratic Party in shreds"??? Come on, Andy, get a nut. Your political blogging has become particularly undone as you've gone more and more in the tank for Obama. The Democratic party is lucky to have two strong candidates who are neck and neck in this contest. This is by historical measures a rather tame primary fight and not an all that long one -- this isn't a 1968 Viet Nam convention. Things are going to be fine and if they weren't, your shrieking wouldn't help the situation. The Dems take this thing easy, with a historical presidency in either case.

  4. "...get a nut"?

    Do you mean, bust a nut? I'm sure Andy has a full sex life. We all like to bust a nut every now and then--even old John McCain (probably with a little help from Viagra, but maybe not. They make 'em durable out there in the Rocky Mountain states...well, if believe "Brokeback".)

  5. Yea I think all the panic is unwarranted. At the end of the day, the Democrats have TWO candidates that folks are excited about in one way or another, and the GOP has one likeable-enough but ultimately dinosaur candidate that seriously lacks enthusiastic support. Wait until the GE starts and see how these candidates look next to McCain then. I almost feel bad for the guy just thinking about it.

  6. Rend the party in shreds? I have to agree with SHEESH. I am wondering if you are going to endorse anyone, or is this not that kind of site. Lets all remember, 77 Convention Reagan took it to the convention, then Kennedy challenged Carter at the Convention in 80. So this is what we have, and neither one has enough delgates and won't.

  8. Oh, please. Andy's hardly been ranting for Obama the way folks like Andrew Sullivan or AmericaBlog have. He's been presenting the news, which has been, by all accounts, Hillary undoing herself with lies and attacks. Anybody who doesn't see that are the fervent Hillary supporters who freak out every time Obama gets a mention here. I think both candidates are very capable but Hillary's been digging her own grave lately.

  9. Well said, Don.

  10. Nice rhetoric Don. Love it when someone uses the old "A is true, and anyone who doesn't see that is {stupid, unpatriotic, evil, etc.}".

    And of course the beauty of this rhetorical device is that anyone who questions point A then comes across as the thing you said they are.

  11. I don't think the Democratic primary is tearing the party down, I think it's building it up—and I think when Obama is finally declared the rightful winner, he will be all the stronger for that. If McCain beats him (or if something happens that makes Hillary the nominee and McCain beats her), it won't have anything to do with the length of the Democratic primary, it will be because more people are stupid than they are smart in this country. Not that only Republicans are stupid—certainly, there are a lot of people who'd vote for McCain because they like his policies. But there is that middle-ground of people, the "swing" voters, who seem to be incredibly influenced by insubstantial things—chief among them the bogus concept of "patriotism." I am still very positive about the Dems' chances to get the White House. Don't underestimate Obama's strength, and don't underestimate the (equally insubstantial, but favorable to my side!) appeal of seeing a young, handsome, brilliant orator standing alongside an ancient, belligerent, ill-spoken garden gnome.

  12. I hope and pray you're right, MATTHEW. I said it before, Barack will be the sexiest looking president since Ulysses S. Grant. Grant was real "butch" though; Barack is kinda' pretty, but that's all right with me.
