Democrat Barack Obama, who often argues that John McCain is the same as President Bush, said Sunday that the Republican presidential candidate would be an improvement over Bush's eight-year reign.
"You have a real choice in this election. Either Democrat would be better than John McCain. And all three of us would be better than George Bush," Obama said.
This via the AP.
The headline? "Obama says McCain would be better president than Bush."
Thing is, a cup of 3-day old moldy lime jello would be a better president than Bush.
So what the fuck is the story here?
Does anybody really think Barack Obama wants you to vote for John McCain?
Why yes, of course someone does. According to the same story, HRC quickly responded:
"We need a nominee who will take on John McCain, not cheer on John McCain."
Oh, that's rich.
Maybe we're in luck: it looks like this story was more or less DOA.
