Irony: McCain’s Congratulates Obama on the Anniversary of MLK’s speech

Um…I think this from TV ad John McCain is great (video below).  It will run tonight before and after Obama’s historic speech at the DNC.  It’s good that McCain recognizes the significance of this day, but McCain voted against the MLK holiday in Arizona in 1983!  Right?!?!  Yes!!!  That is so ironic!  Do you really understand the significance of this day when you had an issue with giving the most significant man in this equation his own day?!?!?  Oh yes, he’s changed his mind now…sure, sure, he understands he was wrong.  OK, but it’s still ironic.  Don’t you think?

Spin Cycle has the details – “McCain will attempt to be make nice before he performs the widely speculated act of naming his vice president running mate some time Friday to counteract any boost in the polls for Obama.”

    LOL! No Jarrett, it doesn’t. It is so damn fake that it looks like it hurts. It is kinda sarcastic sounding also.
