Today, John McCain had an interesting exchange with one of his supporters at a town hall meeting. Admittedly, the supporter’s question was somewhat lengthy and circuitous so there is a chance that McCain got tired of listening before he made his response.
QUESTIONER: If we don’t reenact the draft, I don’t think we’ll have anyone to chase Bin Laden to the gates of hell.
MCCAIN: Ma’am, let me say that I don’t disagree with anything you said.
Either McCain will agree with anything his supporters say just to move onto the next question OR he thinks reinstating the draft is a good idea. Neither alternative speaks well of him.
So, my young Republican friends (as McCain would say), be happy in the knowledge that the finger that you use to pull the lever down for McCain in the voting booth will be the same finger that will be poised on the trigger of a gun once McCain is in office. Republican mothers across the country, you too can take comfort in the knowledge that your vote for McCain will result in your sons and daughters getting their brains blown out in one of the many wars McCain has planned for his administration.
At least they’ll get to travel overseas to Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Georgia or Russia before they die.
