And Another Similarity: They Both Had White Mommas

OK, we have run across some pretty weird stuff crawling around out here in the Internet toobz. Usually after a few Stolis, but that's beside the point. Just for fun try a Google search on "Possum grits" and you'll see what we mean. Or you could go straight to the liquor cabinet and cut out the middle man.

Anyway, we bring this up because of all the bizarre things that have appeared on our computer screen, this has to be one of the bizarrest.

The McCain campaign is taking their effort to distance their candidate from the unpopular President Bush to a whole new level: McCain's advisers are saying that Barack Obama is the one who is like Bush on the war!

We'll pause here a moment just to let that sink in, or until your head stops spinning.

Feeling better? OK, take a large drink because here's their reason:

"I think the American people have had enough of inflexibility and stubbornness in national security policy," McCain foreign policy adviser Randy Scheunemann said. When asked later by the Huffington Post's Sam Stein whether the campaign was disparaging President Bush, Scheunemann dug in: "We cannot afford to replace one administration that refused for too long to acknowledge failure in Iraq with a candidate that refuses to acknowledge success in Iraq."

Now, for those of you who haven't run screaming into the night, let's parse this little disquisition.

Premise one: President Bush is inflexible and stubborn because he looks at Iraq and sees only success where there is really failure.

Premise two: Senator Obama is inflexible and stubborn because he looks at the same Iraq and sees only failure where there is really success.

Conclusion: Senator Obama is like President Bush.

Well, except that he's a flip flopper.

This concludes our logic lesson for the day. The bar is now open.
