McCain: “Unfare! Uh, I Mean… UNFAIR!” July 21, 2008

Posted by gregquill in Uncategorized.

Senator John McCain is having a a bad week or two. The latest: The New York Times scribbled all over his draft Op-Ed piece, just like all of his perfussers used to do back at the Boat School … uh, the Naval Academy.

One can imagine John fuming, “What do they think I was, a STUDENT?!”

Senator Obama wrote an Op-Ed piece for the Times last week, and it was published. McCain’s staff fired off a rebuttal piece, but the Times Opinion Page Editor, David Shipley, rejected it. “I’d be very eager to publish the Senator on the oped page. However I’m not going to be able to accept this piece as currently written,” Shipley is said to have written.

McCain has had six or seven Op-Ed’s published by the Times. Just imagine: every time, they must nag him on spelling, sentence structure, and basic grammar. Probably smudges, too; I wouldn’t put it past them. Don’t they know he graduated fifth from the bottom of his class?! How unfair.

Cut him some slack, Shipley!

Just found your blog site, but I’ll be back. I do love a good laugh particularly where politics are concerned, it’s the only thing that keeps me from doing something drastic and I’m too old to go to jail.

Thanks, Sylvia.

Good, Sandy! There are probably a LOT of politicians who qualify for Matching No Child Left Behind funds. And people who begin each sentence with “like”.

Kenju, he writes about it in his book, “Faith Of Our Fathers”.
