Gulp, McCain Confused, McCain No Like Live TV

This is a classic example of McCain once again getting confused trying to answer a simple question. McCain says the bailout bill, for which he voted is "putting us on the brink of economic disaster." Wait, what? Mika Brzezinski asked him why he voted for the bill when it contained lots of earmarks, the very same earmarks that McCain's been railing against, during a time when the country is on the brink of an economic disaster. McCain says, "Well, for the reason that you just stated, this bill puts us on the brink of an economic disaster."

Obviously, he was saying he had to vote for the bill despite the earmarks because of the crisis. Obviously, he would hope that Sarah Palin is more articulate than he is tonight at the debate. Obviously, he'd like to have his cake and eat it to.

Besides, when will someone stand up to McCain and say not all earmarks are bad! They build our roads, they build our hospitals, they build our schools. McCain himself said that the money for Alaska's Bridge to Nowhere should've been used to repair the Minneapolis bridge that collapsed. Doesn't he realize that a lot of these "projects" are for items just like that? It's not like Congress is giving away funds to send people to Hawaii for vacation.
