Have I mentioned that McCain is a joke?

New York Times:
The unthinkable has happened. Senator John McCain met a question, while sitting with reporters on his bus as it rumbled through Iowa today, that he couldn’t – or perhaps wouldn’t – answer.

Did he support the distribution of taxpayer-subsidized condoms in Africa to fight the transmission of H.I.V.?...

The upshot was that Mr. McCain said he did not know this subject well, did not know his position on it, and relied on the advice of Senator Tom Coburn, a physician and Republican from Oklahoma.
Of course, only a mainstream media hack would pretend it is a surprise to find McCain unable or unwilling to answer a question. McCain's bullshit is well-documented, but it doesn't fit the corporate media's spin that McCain is some sort of straight-shooting maverick. Even worse is that Sen. Coburn favors the death penalty for abortion providers! And that's who McCain turns to for advice?
