McCain to counterprogram Obama in Germany with visit to Gulf Coast oil rig
Source: Politico

While Barack Obama is speaking about international affairs in Germany before thousands of fans tomorrow, John McCain will be talking about a pressing domestic issue with an equally striking if very different backdrop.

Weather permitting, McCain will helicopter from Louisiana to an oil rig in the Gulf Coast to make the case for expanded off-shore drilling, says a McCain aide.

The GOP nominee will be joined by a small press pool of reporters and photographers on a trek sure to offer memorable images. Because of space constraints, Louisiana Gov. and veep prospect Bobby Jindal will not make the trip.

12. LOL
I wonder if a tank will fit on a drilling rig. He'd look really cool in a hard hat in a tank.

7. The McCain message just gets more Fu*ked up with the passing

of each day. I would almost feel sorry for him had he not been a Keating Five criminal, hot head, and a crass Bush supporter.

10. If this is the rate of increase in the Fucked-Uppedness Factor to date . ..

Can you imagine the state of his campaign by mid-October?

They'll be handwriting campaign flyers on parchment before dropping them from dirigibles!

They'll be demanding an end to the menace of these new-fangled "Motor-Cars" on their wireless broadcasts!

They'll be handing out free bottles of Jack Daniels and squares of fiberglass insulation when McCain drops in at a day-care center!

13. Now he can go look at the 12 mile spill on the Gulf in New Orleans.
That should put the skids to one more of his innumerable stupid and senseless ideas. I guess jerry falwell would say if he were still here that God is mad at McCain or is it Pat who will say it?

Do we have a Dem planted in the campaign that's secretly working for us? It sure seems that way.

31. Louisiana?
He should get an ice-fishing auger and start drilling on Miami Beach.

For 18 years he agreed with the Bush 41 executive order banning OCS drilling.
In June he decided he was for it.
He's a mega-flip-flopper.
