Thanks for the, uh, help, sir…

So for today’s great moment from the McCain campaign, Johnnie did a photo-op at a grocery store, helped a shopper grab some applesauce off the shelf, and, as he shuffled (yes) over to put it in her cart, a whole rack of applesauce jars crashed to the ground. Along with his press secretary’s heart.

No. I’m not making that up. At least he didn’t scream “Incoming!” and drop to the floor.

Later in the day, in an interview with CNN, he said Obama’s timetable for getting the troops out of Iraq–16 months–was utterly unacceptable, but Iraq president Maliki’s timetable sounded pretty good.

Maliki’s timetable is 16 months.

Only four more months to go!
