Bobblespeak Beat The Onion on McCain Snark


I see from Ana Marie's link (another acid-tongued liveblogger) that The Onion made a funny about John McCain riding Greyhound.

As is happens, they owe The Bobblespeak Translations a coke -- he beat them to it by a month.

DES MOINES, IA—"Citing a series of unanticipated disruptions to the Greyhound bus service, a red-faced and breathless Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) arrived 50 minutes after the start of the Republican presidential debates Sunday.

According to the beleaguered candidate, a series of departure delays, missed transfers, and a flat tire outside Oxford, OH forced him to arrive at the outskirts of Iowa's capital five minutes before the debate was about to begin."

Gregory: McCain is running the suckiest campaign ever

Purdum: he's not trying to pander to people anymore - he still supports the war

Gregory: he has no more money

Purudm: last year he had a private jet and last week he was seen in Row 29 of a coach

Gregory: on a commercial airline? Wow

Purdum: no Greyhound dood
