"I've got a pen. This one's kind of old."
"As president of the United States, I want to assure you, I've got a pen. This one's kind of old. I've got a pen, and I'm going to veto every single spending bill that comes across my desk. I will make them famous. You will know their names."
-McCain

1. The pens or the spending bills?
Is McCain naming his pens now?

6. I think that "surreal" is actually being a little too kind
to McCain. :) He was very odd.

8. Confused again!
That one was his new pen, the old one is a quill.

10. "Kind of old?"
It wasn't a pen--it was a quill.

13. When I forst heard him say that during the debate, I thought he said...
"As president of the United States, I want to assure you, I've got a pen. This one's not GOLD, but I've got a pen..."

Honest...thought he was inferring that he would have a GOLD pen when he became the pretzelnut. :eyes:

15. First he's talking about a pen. Then he referred to himself.
It was quite exhausting for me to follow his line of thinking.

22. I think he said that in regard to Iraq war. Another condescending moment toward Obama.
