You'd be hard pressed to find anyone, especially any journalist, who didn't think Obama's speech was the best since JFK. But anyone who did (especially when they write a piece that will be heavily syndicated) deserves to be held up and shouted about.

Saunter To The White House 112 ; McCain Doesn't Know How Many Houses He Has Or What Car He Drives

That's right, apart from the discussion that John McCain doesn't know how many homes he owns, he doesn't know what type of car he drives.

In that case Senator McCain, perhaps you'd mind telling us what the point of it was and exactly what it meant?
