"People are 'scratching' their heads about your opposition to the surge..."
Really Katie? Well people are scratching their heads and wondering why you didn't question Mr. Morton on getting the timeline wrong regarding the surge. In fact, people are "scratching" their heads and wondering just why the hell your network did an edit job to make Mr. Morton look good.
"Katie Couric: Senator McCain, Senator Obama says, while the increased number of US troops contributed to increased security in Iraq, he also credits the Sunni awakening and the Shiite government going after militias. And says that there might have been improved security even without the surge. What's your response to that?
McCain: I don't know how you respond to something that is as-- such a false depiction of what actually happened. Colonel MacFarland was contacted by one of the major Sunni sheiks. Because of the surge we were able to go out and protect that sheik and others. And it began the Anbar awakening. I mean, that's just a matter of history.
In fact, as Spencer Ackerman and Ilan Goldenberg have reported, the record firmly establishes the opposite: instead of being caused by the surge, the key signs of the Anbar Awakening occurred not only before that strategy was implemented, but before it was ever conceived."
Yes Katie, I am on that ass again tonight (Not literally of course; you are not my type). And you wonder why your ratings are tanking? Like WTF? I expect shit like this from FOX, not a so called real news organization. Look, I know you have some hard feelings for the "O" man, but on your way out the damn door, could you at least try to preserve a shred of dignity?
And why is this not a major news story? Can you imagine if CNN or NBC had edited an interview of his "O" ness to cover up a gaffe? You would try to turn off your fucking T.V. and Rupert Murdoch would find a way to turn it on again. The shit would be wall to wall coverage.
Instead, we have Alan Greenspan's wife (who has probably been to more plastic surgeons than her husband has years on his hoary body. And that's saying something), and Katie Couric bit....(whoops I can't use that word when referring to women) whining about the lack of access to his "O" ness, while he is on his world tour. (More on that in a minute) Katie, get over that shit, and try to do a good job when you do land a big interview. Here is a nice little start for you: try telling your damn producers not to edit what your interviewee says next time. Just a thought. Since you are reporting the news, and not making a fucking movie.
Now as for that world tour the "O"man is on: Yo "O" man, a word of advise from your friendly neighborhood field Negro: Stop acting like you are already the president of these divided states. In case you didn't notice, you are not flying on Air Force One; so calm the fuck down, and tell your aides to do the same. There is nothing white folks hate more that an uppity Negro. And I know you want their votes ( You have been throwing everything black under the bus to get it. Has anyone seen my blackberry? Ahh sorry Senator, you threw it under the bus. Don't you remember? .....let me stop.), so you might want to chill a little bit. I know you are not here to hear it, but they have been talking. And your opponent damn near told the rest of A-merry-ca that you care more about becoming president than what's best for A-merry-ca, and no one in the media is saying shit about it; because, I suspect, that there is a black-lash building up against you.
Anyway, enjoy the rest of your trip. And stay away from Katie and Andrea.
