The Oversighter

posted by on September 16 at 14:28 PM

For this to come out of the mouth of McCain TODAY….

The point is, I was chairman of the commerce committee. Every part of America’s economy, I oversighted. I have a long record, certainly far more extensive of being involved in our economy than Senator Obama does.

I stand amazed.

So, does that mean he's personally taking responsibility for the total cock-up our economy is in at the moment?

No, it was an oversight.

I can't wait for tonight's Countdown, Rachel Maddow, and Daily Show. I hope they tear McCain a new asshole.

Technically, McCain is right. He has a greater lenghth of time dealing with economic issues in the Senate than his rival.

I'm mobile right now, so don't have access to a dictionary; can someone tell me if "overighted" is a real word, or Bush "word"?

@4: It's true! Ask him about the time he "oversighted" the regulators on the Savings and Loan industry back in the eighties.

Boy, he picks a hell of a time to brag.

No. "Oversight" is a noun. There is no "oversighted".

The Oversighter is still subordinate to Commander Guy.

Speaking of insincere statements, what's your take on this this?

Appears not just capitalists but Communists can be liars too. Much ado was made of this in 1950. Arguably, divided much of the country.

Perhaps he overlooked something.

Thanks for taking credit for the steaming pile of shit that is our economy, John.

@4 yes he has. He can also argue that he has been an American longer, which I wouldn't be surprised if we hear that sometime.

@10: WGAF?

Posted by max solomon | September 16, 2008 5:13 PM

Maybe he meant "overlooked"?

Don't you mean the Decider?

Hey, Wall Street! You voted for them!
