From the files of people who argue by saying things like this,
“NO! You’re irrelevant!”
we have this quote from one John McCain on “Meet The Press”:
McCain was responding to a question from NBC’s David Gregory on “Meet the Press,” about whether Palin’s brand of conservatism is “what the Republican Party needs to regain power in the midterms and ultimately in 2012.” McCain responded that the former Alaska governor has “earned herself a very big place in the Republican political scene” and that he was “proud of her.”
Then came this:
“I am entertained every time I see these people attack her and attack her and attack her. She’s irrelevant, but they continue to attack her. I am so proud of her and the work that she is doing,” McCain said.
He will never learn that there is just no walking back from his bad decision that was Sarah Palin, but he will keep trying:
Brooke Buchanan, a McCain spokesperson, said in an email that the senator wasn’t saying Palin was “irrelevant” but was quoting others as saying she was irrelevant, and noting that despite that, they continued to attack her.
Uh, no Sen. McCain. You said “she’s irrelevant.”
Has Sen. McCain never heard of the “Pottery Barn rule?” Oh…wait a minute, of course he hasn’t. He and Cindy have “people” who shop for them. Besides, he probably thinks a “Pottery Barn” is a barn/art studio where reclusive artists and their pottery wheels live. Or buildings in third world countries where such things are made by child slave labor. Well, never mind.
The point is, Sen. McCain: you break it, you buy it. The two of you are both former irrelevant candidates.
I’m sorry Sen. McCain, I didn’t mean to say you and Palin were both “formerly irrelevant.”
I meant you’re both irrelevant. Period.
