“EVERY INSTINCT I’VE EVER HAD FOR MODERATION AND COMMON-SENSE HAS BEEN WRONG; NOTHING’S EVER WORKED OUT FOR ME IN THE GOP.  SO NOW, I’M GOING TO DO THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE — INSTEAD OF RATIONALITY AND THE ENLIGHTENMENT, I’M GONNA GO WITH BIBLE-THUMPING AND NEANDERTHAL KNOW-NOTHINGNESS.”

“HI, I’M JOHN McCAIN, I’M IGNORANT AND I LIVE IN THE 13th CENTURY.  AND I ACCEPT YOUR NOMINATION FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.”

“JOHN McCAIN IS CHICKEN-SHIT SALAD … THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYTHING THIS COUNTRY SORELY NEEDS.”
