McCain Goofs On The Magic Messianic Negro For Iraq Gaffe

I confess I'm not a Biblical scholar, but I don't remember ever hearing that we would know the Messiah by his Divine Imbecility.

epublican presidential hopeful John McCain mocked Democrat Barack Obama on Wednesday for saying he would take action as president "if al-Qaida is forming a base in Iraq."

"When you examine that statement, it's pretty remarkable," McCain told a crowd in Tyler, Texas.

"I have some news. Al-Qaida is in Iraq. It's called `al-Qaida in Iraq,'" McCain said, drawing laughter at Obama's expense.

Obama quickly answered back, telling a rally at Ohio State University in Columbus, "I do know that al-Qaida is in Iraq."

"So I have some news for John McCain," he added, saying there was no al-Qaida presence in Iraq until President Bush invaded the country.

1, Bullshit, 2, Irrelevant, as we are discussing this fucking retard's plan to only invade/re-invade Iraq if Al Qaeda should show up in Iraq. Which he now concedes is not so much an if but an is.

So his position is:

1) I'll fight in Iraq if Al Qaeda tries to set up a base there.

2) I do know Al Qaeda is trying to set up a base there.

3) Ergo, I will pull out troops until condition 1 is satisfied, which, actually, it already is (see premise 2), thus requiring me to fight in Iraq, but I'm surrendering, which makes no sense at all but MoveOn.org told me to do it.

...

Throughout the primary season, McCain has repeatedly attacked Obama and Democratic rival Hillary Rodham Clinton for saying they would withdraw troops from Iraq.

"And my friends, if we left, they (al-Qaida) wouldn't be establishing a base," McCain said Wednesday. "They'd be taking a country, and I'm not going to allow that to happen, my friends. I will not surrender. I will not surrender to al-Qaida."

He said that withdrawing troops would be "waving the white flag."

Racist.

Who knew -- to heal this country's wounds, we all just need 300cc's of low-grade mental retardation.

Thanks to Jay.
