McCain Doesn’t Use Gas June 29, 2008 6:02 pm

Ok. McCain uses gas but doesn’t know the price of a gallon of gas. Is it relevant? I would think so but then again, in a leadership position, it is not so much what you know as much as what your advisers can tell you.

WISCKOL: When was the last time you pumped your own gas and how much did it cost? 

McCAIN: Oh, I don’t remember. Now there’s Secret Service protection. But I’ve done it for many, many years. I don’t recall and frankly, I don’t see how it matters. I’ve had hundreds and hundreds of town hall meetings, many as short a time ago as yesterday. I communicate with the people and they communicate with me very effectively.

I had the unique pleasure of being called "a flaming liberal" by a relative a couple of weeks ago. I have never really applied a label to my political beliefs so it actually took me a second to process; that is until he said, "I’d vote for W a third term!" Who has those flaming liberal t-shirts? I’ll wear one.

“Flaming liberal” is such a funny term.

Was it one of my blood, or one of yours?

It was my uncle at the beach. They visited one night and I accidentally steered the conversation into politics and my brother, his wife, Cathy and I all took the same point of view on an issue, and my uncle laughs and calls out to my aunt, “Honey help! I’m surrounded by flaming liberals!” He’s a riot!
