John McCain – Biker-in-Chief

In his latest bid to look presidential, John McCain told an enthusiastic biker gathering in South Dakota:

As you may know, not long ago a couple hundred thousand Berliners made a lot of noise for my opponent. I’ll take the roar of 50,000 Harleys any day.

I’m sure this greatly increases Germany’s anticipation of his election. McCain – a true statesman!

Considering this quote plus his endorsement of his wife for Miss Buffalo Chip, I can see McCain one day following in the footsteps of John F. Kennedy, addressing a German crowd with the immortal words:

Ich bin ein sexist motorradfahrer!

  1. “I’m sure this greatly increases Germany’s anticipation of his election.”

    Who cares what Germany thinks of our election or our candidates? This is to decide the President of the United States of America.

  2. Have you learned nothing from George Bush’s isolationist policies? Of course, what ultimately matters is what Americans think of the candidates, but one of the goals of this election should be to improve our reputation abroad.

  3. Rutherford,

    As far as I can tell, President Bush’s ‘isolationist’ policies have demonstrated that the conventional wisdom of the world is usually wrong and there is no consequences for ignoring it.

    Maybe I’m wrong. Please list for us some ways the opinions of these other nations have adversely affected the US.

  4. Germany, of course, isn’t electing the next president. But they will absolutely have to work with whoever is elected. Why shouldn’t Germans (or Brits or whoever) voice an opinion? Whoever the next president is has a lot of fence-mending to do with our traditional allies.

  5. Deanna, glad you found the blog!

    Rigorist, since we are supposedly in a war on terrorism, please list for me the members of the alliance against the axis of evil. As far as I can see, we’re fighting this “war” on our own (in the wrong country by the way) because the countries who could be our allies think we are a nutcase cowboy nation.

    To borrow Deanna’s phrase, it is important that we “mend fences” if we’re going to get a global united front against terrorists. McCain basically said he’d rather be the opening act for the Miss Buffalo Chip jiggle fest than to spend that time reaching out to allies who can HELP us protect our country.

  6. Meanwhile, the angry masses in South Korea protest George Bush’s visit. It will be so nice to have the world looking at our country and our president in a different light with Barack Obama. Can’t wait!

  7. Rutherford,

    Are you suggesting that if the US had sign Kyoto that China would have sent armed forces to Afghanistan? Are you saying that any country would have?
