Now I love red meat as much as anyone else. Just look at this piece I wrote about Janeane Garofalo. Or how about this (hilarious) video I made that discusses my disappointment with California letting 12 year old girls get abortions behind their parents’ back. Red meat can be fun, and there’s a place for it, but you have to make sure you don’t look like a jackass when you’re throwing it out there. Take this story about Obama’s “Canadian” bus that he’s been using the past few months. Republicans have howled about it, and John McCain has recently been caught dissing it, both on Twitter and on the Senate floor.
But… Here’s the problem. A gaggle of Republicans have used these buses that have been built by Prevost (the Canadian company in question). Among them are Michele Bachmann, George W. Bush, and… um, well… John McCain. So this howling about the “Canadian” built bus looks a little asinine when things are put into perspective. I mean, come on, John… The “Straight Talk Express” is said to be a Prevost bus. You didn’t know that? Or are you getting carried away with your red meat? You know what happens to people who aren’t careful when tossing meat around, don’t ya? They get eaten by lions. (or mocked by bloggers… or something like that)
