If you have the choice …

Make McCain your enemy. That way the stab wound will be in front.

… have John McCain as an enemy, rather than a “friend.” That way the stab wound will be in front.

One thought on “If you have the choice …”

  1. Ironically, last night I saw McCain on the evening news, displaying his famous temper to a crowd at a town meeting, who had the nerve to object to his legalization first immigration proposal, and complain about inadequate border enforcement. And what was his jab at them?

    “Everybody is entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts.”

    Mind, he didn’t follow that up by citing any facts that actually contradicted the complaints… But I think it tells you who he thinks his friends are. 😉
