Slide gauge thinking in a Digital World.
Wonder, deep in the quiet darkness of night just how often McCain realizes just how far behind the curve he is?
McCain's Tire Gauge Gambit
Submitted by Lahdee on Wed, 2008-08-06 01:23.
Despite voting against raises in the minimum wage and years of denying workerâs rights to organize John McCain struck a chord with some employees of an Ohio company recently. Following Obamaâs suggestion that Americans could improve their gas mileage
by having accurate tire pressure McCain decided tire gauges would be a great way to mock him as part of the âitâs the Democrats fault gas prices are highâ campaign.
McCain needed tire gauges and he needed them fast. His campaign approached âTire Gauges âr Usâ (TGU) of Ohio with an order for 1 million.
Hearing that TGU could only create 500,000 at a time the campaign said they would have McCain receive the order in person if TGU could make them within 24 hours. Inspired the workers labored long and hard and succeeded in producing 975,000 by the deadline.
A smiling TGU President Les Enmore delivered the gauges at a gala ceremony. âWe didnât make the goal, but we were damn close,â he proclaimed.
âWe appreciate the effort,â said campaign spokesman Jay Walker.
âWhereâs McCain?â came a cry from a worker who was quickly hustled off.
Ignoring the outburst Walker went on to conclude, âYou all should be honored to work for a company like TGU.â
âWhereâs our bonus?â screamed another.
âStrike!â yelled someone else as he and a group of unruly workers were removed from the area.
âWe appreciate John McCainâs efforts to help small business and the workers of Ohio,â said Enmore following the ceremony, âIn fact weâll be having a job fair next week.â
Asked if he had offered the Obama campaign a deal Enmore shook his head, âNo, Senator Obama uses digital gauges.â
