McCain sounds sour note at Obama's summit

I wonder if McCain realizes how silly and petulant he looked at President Obama's fiscal responsibility summit on Monday? Sam has a partial transcript but you really have to watch the full video here to get the full flavor of the sour grapes McCain is choking down with this little quip. It's so obvious he thinks he scored a real zinger in bringing up the presidential helicopter. He gets all puffed up with his own cleverness and then pathetically deflates when Obama righteously outclasses him with his response to the dig.

Why McCain thought it was a good idea to bring up a procurement that Obama had nothing to do with, remains a mystery. It was Bush who ordered the new fleet of 28 planes, including the new helicopter, at a cost of $11 billion dollars. McCain ends up looking not only petty, but like an idiot.

More must reads on this story. The Caucus has the ultimate photo of the event and captures the essence of McCain's bitterness, while watertiger skewers the desiccated old goat along with a bonus jibe at McCain's former running mate, who shared her paranoid fantasies about how the media is "out to get her" yesterday.

It chills the blood to think what disasters that dubious duo would have caused by now had they somehow managed to win the election.

No, sorry. Doesn't ring a bell.

Jindal makes the new dictionary.

I'm in awe of the put-down of no put-down. Obama let McCain look foolish all by himself without any noticeable effort or confrontation, using only McCain's momentum.

It's zen and Judo and it was awe inspiring.

I was rather awestruck by it myself. Obama is subtle but deadly in that way.
