  1. Annoyed by Barack Obama's observation that McCain was forced to wear a "flack" jacket in Baghdad, McCain fired back. From

    McCain responds and then some

    McCain responds to Obama in tough enough, if predictable, language:

    "While Senator Obama's two years in the U.S. Senate certainly entitle him to vote against funding our troops, my service and experience combined with conversations with military leaders on the ground in Iraq lead me to believe that we must give this new strategy a chance to succeed because the consequences of failure would be catastrophic to our nation's security."

    But, McCain being McCain, he can't help himself and goes the next step in the statement's kicker:

    "By the way, Senator Obama, it's a 'flak' jacket, not a 'flack' jacket."

    Which is to say, "there is only one of us in this argument who has ever worn the uniform." (my words)

    And if you still don't get it, a McCain aide blows away the anthill with, well, a rocket.

    "Obama wouldn't know the difference between an RPG and a bong."

  2. I think McCain clearly owes Obama an apology. I don't know if Obama can recognize an RPG, but I'm pretty sure he knows how to handle a bong.
