Presumptive Republican nominee for president John McCain wasted no time Tuesday night in launching his battle for the November general election.
Only minutes after Barack Obama claimed the Democratic nomination over rival Hillary Rodham Clinton following his win of the Montana primary, McCain sought to win over disaffected Clinton supporters. “My friends, if it’s a female leader you want, you’re looking at him,” McCain told a New Orleans rally.
“I’ve spent the last few weeks in private, getting in touch with my feminine side. And you know what? No elderly man is prouder of his man-boobs than me, my friends,” said McCain.
“In fact, my friends, I can be more than friends to Senator Clinton’s supporters. I want them to consider me to be their sister,” he said. He concluded the speech by removing and burning his manssiere, which he called an act of liberation.
McCain was dressed in a smart lilac-colored pantsuit, white shoes and checkered scarf. He went on to say the scarf, a kaffiyeh, came from a cute little stall he discovered while shopping in a Baghdad bazaar with the 1st Air Cavalry.
