From the 60 Minutes hagiography on John McCain tonight:
“You’re saying that Senator Obama doesn’t have the experience? That he’s too naïve to be president?” Pelley asked.
“No, I am saying that I have that. And if the phone rings at 3:00a.m., I think the American people would want me to answer it first,” McCain replied.
If the Democrats lose in 2008, it can be traced directly to Hillary’s decision to enter this 3 am nonsense into the discourse in her last-ditch attempt to have super-delegates overturn the will of the people.
Also in the piece was this gem:
“In your town hall meetings you’re fond of saying that you will follow Osama bin Laden to the gates of hell,” Pelley remarked. “With respect, following him to the gates of hell is easy. What’s hard is putting several divisions of U.S. forces on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. What are you willing to do?”
“Well, the first thing is not tell Osama bin Laden what I’m gonna do. But I’ll get him,” McCain vowed.
Now that there is some straight talk you can take to the bank.
