Unfortunately he doesn't need your vote.

Notice the bit he lifted from Obama about IDing the earmarkers and pork barrel spenders to the public... and then the Clinton job training program bone he tossed.

Did he lift that from Obama? Or from his AZ buddy Jeff Flake?

Not sure. I first heard it from Obama in the early part of the primary, but it could be from 1892 for all I really know.

Flake has been leading the charge against earmarks on capital hill for quite a little while now, and in an entirely non-partisan manner. He and McCain are definitely buds. OTOH, there are an awful lot of folks who oppose earmark spending, completely independently of each other.

Well you learn every day.

I came away from the speech primarily with a deep appreciation of the idiocy of the 12th amendment.
