Yes, you read that right. John McCain had a bit of a slip-up when, in a speech today in Bethlehem PA along with Sarah Palin, he referred to the American people as his “fellow prisoners.”
Here’s the clip, and the transcript of the segment of the speech if you don’t believe me. I think it speaks for itself. But, after seeing a few slip ups he made several months ago where Joe Lieberman, standing behind him like a puppet master, had to help correct John when he got confused, I worry that John McCain is of sound mind. No one seemed to correct him this time, though. I guess Lieberman has better things to do?
Let’s not forget in the debate last night when he referred to Barack Obama as “that one.” That probably was no slip of the tongue; I think he meant that to be demeaning. That clip is also below.
I think the pressure is getting to him. It almost reminds me of the movie “2001 A Space Odyssey” where the Hal 9000 computer is having his memory chips pulled, and he says, “My mind is going…”
My Fellow Prisoners
"You and I together will confront the $10 trillion debt the federal government has run up and balance the federal budget by the end of my term in office. Across this country, this is the agenda I have set before my fellow prisoners and the same standards of clarity and candor must now be applied to my opponent."
McCain Calls Obama “That One”
Here’s McCain being corrected by Lieberman, back in the spring, just as a memory refresher:
