Quote of the Day

From John McCain yesterday:

Good morning. I’m John McCain, and this week the presidential contest was a long-distance affair, with my opponent touring various continents and arriving yesterday in Paris. With all the breathless coverage from abroad, and with Senator Obama now addressing his speeches to ‘the people of the world,’ I’m starting to feel a little left out. Maybe you are too.

Sheesh. You want some cheese with that whine? (As Bob notes, Phil Gramm was right; we have become a nation of whiners.)

What’s doubly ironic is that — as I’m sure everyone has noted — it was John McCain’s goading, gulling, teasing, and prodding that got Barack Obama to go overseas in the first place. Now that he’s done it, here’s McCain complaining that he’s alone and feeling blue.

Didn’t see that coming.
