Confirmed: Iraqi PM endorsed Obama’s plan.

Caught on tape: Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki endorsing Sen. Barack Obama’s troop withdrawal plan. So what does McCain do now? Go all paternal and say that he knows what’s best for Iraq, not Iraqis? Pretend this never happened? Or admit that Obama’s plan for a withdrawal timetable is apparently the right one?

  1. Pretend this never happened?

    Sure, why not? He could go through his website and remove all references to Iraq timetables. Failproof!

  2. Guys I think you’re missing the brilliance of this for McCain! If timetables are tantamount to surrendering, then THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT IS SURRENDERING! WE BEAT THE IRAQIS! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!1

    …wait that part happened already?

  3. McCain. You mean John McCain? John McCain is probably the least relevant person in American politics since Jesse Helms died. The man still thinks it’s 1980. He has never used the internet, didn’t get the memo that Czechoslovakia hasn’t existed for 15 years and doesn’t know the difference between Sunnis and Shiites 7 years after 9/11. This guy does not live in the same universe that the rest of us do.

    Does anyone really care what John McCain thinks or says or does?

    The ‘Grandpa Simpson’ comparisons get more and more apt each day.

  4. I just don’t feel that John McCain spent enough time as a POW to earn my vote. Five and a half years? Come on. I happen to think we need someone with a little more experience than that.

    Not that I’m dismissing McCain for good. I’d like to see him return to the Hanoi Hilton for a few years, get some more experience and then maybe run again in 2012.
