McCain rocks the Fudge Haus

I couldn’t make this up if I wanted to. At roughly the same time Barack Obama was addressing thousands of enchanted Germans in Berlin:

Obama in Berlin


John McCain was also courting the German goodwill in Columbus, Ohio. And while CNN chose to carry Obama’s speech live, they gave equal time to McCain by showing a delayed tape of his brief press conference … in front of Schmidt’s Fudge Haus in Columbus:

Two candidates practicing the delicate art of image crafting and the perception of power and authority. Sorry, Obama campaign, you can’t beat the Fudge Haus for presidential gravitas.

  1. [...] Yesterday’s planned campaign appearance on an offshore oil rig may have been cancelled, but our next president, John Sidney McCain III, is still stealing front-page headlines as opponent Barack Obama’s overseas tour continues with a typically uninspiring performance in Berlin today.  [...]

    Awesome robot post, “McCain Veep Watch: Pawlenty? at womenforjohnmccain.com | women4mccain.com – Welcome to Women for John McCain 2008 | Women for John McCain: covering the serious issues that concern women voters in today’s big, confusing world,” if that’s your real name.

    I have this to say in response: Jindal.

    What could be more proof of foreign policy expertise than standing in front of a fudge store ? Oh, I get it: stand in front of a cheese display. Cheesy, indeed.

    And he says (McCain) that he’ll make those foreign policy speeches abroad when he is already President. Give me a break ! The only reason, well maybe , not the only but one main reason he’s saying that is that he’s afraid about being booed. Seriously, does the McCain camp think there are enough people in Germany to cheer him ? Last time I checked the so-called Neo Nazis have disbanded.

    McCain will be making those speeches when he is already President ? So when exactly will he be President ? Uhmm, 2022 ? Will he still be alive by then ? I mean, wake up and shape up McC camp. If you think you can win a campaign by appealing to the silliness of some Americans, I think you have another think coming.

    But seriously, the RNC have been pretty quiet these days. They are making another silly commercial after that one about Obama being to blame for the rising oil prices. As they say back home, never overestimate the good but never underestimate the evildoers either.

  5. Hi TCL – actually, that ‘bot post’ happened because we’re both using WordPress. It’s how WordPress deals with ‘trackbacks’ – my post must have linked to this post, and then WordPress does an ‘trackback’ comment automatically.

    Jindal!

    John McCain is also a very good politician. he did not win because the people are not satisfied on the Republicans.,’*
