McCain: if wishes were horses edition

While Barak Obama addressed an audience in Berlin, presumptive GOP presidential candidate John McCain (stuck in Ohio) churlishly said:

    "I'd love to give a speech in Germany ... a political speech or a speech that maybe the German people would be interested in, but I'd much prefer to do it as president of the United States rather than as a candidate for the office of presidency."

Senator McCain, I'd love to buy you a drink, but I'd much prefer to do that as a Powerball winner...and I think we both have about as much chance of getting our wishes.

I suppose we can look forward to similarly asinine statements in the months ahead.

Dr. Trotsky,

I can't remember where I read this, but here's what McCain should've said:
"Having 25,000 germans chanting your name has a bad historical precedent".

Very tacky, and it would've set back relations between the two countries. If I were McCain, I don't know if I coulda resisted it.
