McCain is Montgomery Burns:
John McCain is acting like he's living in the past:
- McCain said the United States should set up a missle defense system in Czechoslovakia. That country no longer exists.
- Spoke of a need to establish a "League of Nations" to deal with foreign policy issues. That entity, the League of Nations, was disbanded in 1946.
Which makes him very much like Mr. Burns of the Simpson's. In one episode
he went to the post office and said
"I'd like to send this letter to the Prussian consulate in Siam by aeromail."
If you've been around people with Alzheimer's much, you probably have a good idea what to expect next: extremely inappropriate racist comments.
This is going to be weird. There's a reason they put Reagan in the closet during his second term.
I'm just waiting for McCain to tell us how he lived through five years of McKinleynomics.
Mr. Burns: I've decided to bring in a few ringers, professional baseballers. We'll give them token jobs at the plant and have them play on our softball team. Honus Wagner, Cap Anson, Mordecai "Three-Finger" Brown...
Mr. Burns, a cheapskate, is known for having short arms and deep pockets. Sen. McCain also has short arms, but his wife has the deep pockets.
