McCain friendly fire on MSNBC "insults" Mika with "joke" Cant keep track of who to attack
Edited on Tue Sep-16-08 07:19 AM by Boz
Just tuned over from CNN to catch Joe Biden on MSNBC and Mika said she was insulted by John McCain and he attacked her for asking a question.

McCain attacked her as a supporter of Obamas and that she was only asking a question(kind of a softball) because she was against McCain and an Obama supporter.

Now they are apologizing for him saying they dont think he meant it and it must have been a joke.

2. If McCain can't keep his friends and enemies straight
then this fool needs to be kept far away from the nuclear football

3. McCain is fucking psycho! He scares me.
Has he watched Morning Joe in oh, the past 6th months? How come the McCain campaign treats its biggest cheerleaders like absolute shit? They don't know a good thing when they have it. Sadly, Mika will probably just up her McCain slobbers instead of rebel and practice real "journalism".

4. He doesn't scare me - his inablity to govern scares me
and then that she devil will have the office and that scares me.

She is a the worst of GWB and Cheney combined - GWB's stupidity and inexperience and Cheney's vindictiveness and selfishness - :scared:

The female reporter on the plane earlier this year

His wife (C***)

6. McCain was not joking.
I watched this and McCain was dead serious, calling out Mika as an Obama supporter. He was using his 'depressed' voice. McCain ended the interview with the words...'that's a cheap shot', apparently related to Mika saying that her brother worked for McCain.

9. I agree.
McCan't meant every word he said. He was not joking and was pissed that Mika spilled the beans about her brother working for McCan't on live television. McCan't took not one, but two cheap shots at Mika. :mad:

8. video clip
John McCain's exchange with Mika comes about 4 minutes into the video.

McCain said, "I know you're a supporter of Senator Obama, if you would urge him to come and do town hall meetings with me as I've asked him to do time after time, the whole tenor of the campaign would change."

12. IMO, the fact that he is saying his nasty campaign is revenge
for Obama refusing town hall meetings should be a big deal. It indicates how he feels about people who disagree or don't give him what he wants. We should be using this because it fits right into the 'hothead' frame: Is this someone fit to lead? How will this personality trait impact negotiations with foreign leaders? With the Congress? Is he going to throw a tantrum and get vicious every time he doesn't get exactly what he wants? What does that mean for the country and the American people?

19. That's a point that needs more attention
He has never been challenged on this. It certainly sounds like revenge.

10. McHoover was upset 'cause he just got his ass handed to him
on CNN by Kiera Chetney (I think that's her name) -of all people. I can't link it up now - but check out that interview. She got him on alot of stuff - how he has stood for years for deregulation, about Ms. Moose's earmarks, etc., while being very polite. I bet he was steaming after that.

I was switching back and forth and he went straight from their to the Morn Joe interview.

13. Mika is such a tool. From her reaction McPalin could just as well called her a whore.
Oh my God! He called me an Obama supporter! What a horrible thing to say!

Then, to prove her Repig credentials, invokes her brother.

Up yours, Mika.

:puke:
