Woops: The video's already front paged! No need to recc!

This is the kind of mental mixup that really makes you wonder what is truly going on inside of John McCain's mind. Here he is, campaigning in Pennsylvania, accidentally calling Americans "my fellow prisoners":

If Sarah Palin wasn't a secessionist, then why was she palling around with them?

A note before the video: After a brief detour into blogging at another site, I'm back at The Jed Report, and that means I can post diaries at Daily Kos again...so here I am, for better...or for worse.

When it came to fighting violence against abortion clinics, John McCain put his radical "pro-life" politics first -- putting women and their doctors at risk:

In 1994, John McCain voted against legislation -- pushed through Congress by Joe Biden -- that helped put an end to the practice of charging rape victims for sexual assault exams.

Twisted as it may sound, charging victims for a forensic exam was a real problem. For example, as AMERICAblog has documented (and the media is now reporting), when Sarah Palin was mayor of Wasilla, the town charged rape victims for the exams.

Biden's legislation required that state, local, and Indian governments provide the rape exams to victims free of charge as a condition of receiving federal funds under the Violence Against Women Act. In 2000, Alaska finally passed state legislation in order to qualify for federal funding.

Todd Harris, a GOP strategist who is close to the McCain campaign, says Palin won't be available to the press for about two weeks. His defense? She might make "a mistake."

If she goes out and makes a mistake, that is something that [voters will] care about, and that's something that will haunt [McCain] for awhile, so I think this is a smart move.

And he's an eastern liberal media elitist.

"No question, she's got a lot of homework to do, let's face it. You just don't walk out and say 'our next vice president,' y'know.  And I know people who are working with her, and I've got a lot of confidence in 'em. And, um, I'd be happy to have her come to North Carolina any day she wants."

Okay, so here's the video. Just don't ask me where John McCain's eyes are traveling, or what he's doing with his wedding ring, because your guess is as good as mine.

McCain's All-Time Greatest Dodge?

by JedReport

Here's a gem of a video clip from the archives. During the January 30 GOP debate at the Reagan Library, Janet Hook of the LA Times asked John McCain why he was more qualified than Mitt Romney to manage the economy. In response, McCain managed to:

+ Say nothing about the economy
+ Say he was more patriotic than Mitt Romney
+ Cite his experience as a POW
+ Argue that "radical Islamic extremism" is a more important issue
+ Criticize a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq
+ Did I mention, say nothing about the economy?

It's truly a hall-of-fame moment in the annals of chronic dodgery. Video and transcript below.

Here's the title screen for my newest video, a mocking look at John McCain's houses problem:

Video below the fold -- it's a perfect way to spend your time as you wait for confirmation that Barack Obama's next VP is Joe Biden (or whomever else it may be).

Update -- Obama pounds 'No Change McCain': Here's video of Barack Obama in Chesapeake, VA this evening, sticking to the "out of touch" theme illustrated by McCain's "How many houses?" moment. He was just scorching:

Original post:

My oh my, how quickly things can change. From the handwringing of yesterday to the buttkicking of today. It started with the news that he couldn't keep track of how many homes he owns:

If you're pro-choice, John McCain isn't for you. Here he is earlier tonight at the Saddleback forum:

I have a 25 year record pro-life record in the Congress, in the Senate, and as President of the United States I will be a pro-life president, and this presidency will have pro-life policies. That's my commitment. That's my commitment to you.

Too bad he isn't pro-life when it comes to war.
