I like that the CNN article implies that Quelch, who served in McCain campaign spokesperson (former) Governor Swift's administration in MA, is an "independent" expert just commenting dispassionately on the wonderfulness of the vacuous McCain/Palin brand.

John McCain is worn-out shoe-leather.

Albeit worn-out $550 Ferragamo loafer shoe-leather.

@6: The comparison's no good. I would actually let a Bloomin' Onion near my mouth.

I am the sun, you are the moon, I am the words, you are the tune. PLAY.

And no, I don't feel like letting it go.
