THE PLANK OCTOBER 16, 2008

Life Imitates Op-ed

Gail Collins, last week:

Remember how we used to joke about John McCain looking like an old
guy yelling at kids to get off his lawn? It’s only in retrospect that
we can see that the keep-off-the-grass
period was the McCain campaign’s golden era. Now, he’s beginning to act
like one of those movie characters who steals the wrong ring and turns
into a troll. During that last debate, while he was wandering
around the stage, you almost expected to hear him start muttering: “We
wants it. We needs it. Must have the precious.”

 John McCain, this week:

Quick, Barack! Destroy the ring before he chews off your finger!

 --Christopher Orr
