I find it amazing that he can’t just admit he misspoke instead of trying to pretend he was saying something else completely.
“And I couldn’t agree with them more — excuse me, disagree more. Sorry folks, it’s been a long campaign.”
“I couldn’t agree with them more. I couldn’t disagree — with you. I couldn’t agree with you more than the fact that western Pennsylvania is the most patriotic…”
Maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised. Through the examples of Monica Goodling, Alberto Gonzales, Condi, and of course Bush, we’ve learned that conservatives prefer to appear stupid than to admit a mistake.
It’s been so obvious that Sen. McCain is in age-related cognitive decline. This is one more piece of evidence to add to many. With luck he will not have to add the deteriorating effect of being president, to a condition that has already been worsened by the campaign.
And does anyone besides me think he might have been on Provigil during the debates?
