When your running in an election, and having a tough time gaining any traction, you know what you REALLY need?
You really need for one of the most unpopular human beings in the entire history of the world to endorse you - that's what you need.
To put it into perspective, Cheney's favorability is 18%.
Typhoid Mary is 15%.
Obama's response? He CONGRATULATED McCain. Priceless:
I'd like to congratulate Senator McCain on this endorsement because he really earned it. That endorsement didn't come easy. Senator McCain had to vote 90 percent of the time with George Bush and Dick Cheney to get it. He served as Washington's biggest cheerleader for going to war in Iraq, and supports economic policies that are no different from the last eight years. So Senator McCain worked hard to get Dick Cheney's support.
But here's my question for you, Colorado: do you think Dick Cheney is delighted to support John McCain because he thinks John McCain's going to bring change? Do you think John McCain and Dick Cheney have been talking about how to shake things up, and get rid of the lobbyists and the old boys club in Washington?
