The sound of clueless

| | Comments (1)

Sen. McCain's reaction to a question about the Carly Fiorina birth control debacle: 8 seconds of silence. I think that speaks louder than words.

Although, his words are pretty fantastic:

"I certainly do not want to discuss that issue."

"I don't know what I voted."

"I don't know enough about it to give you an informed answer." (But you knew enough about it to vote against it?)

"It's something that I had not thought much about." (Yes, I always love to make important decisions about things I don't know about).

"I don't usually duck an issue, but I'm, I'll try to get back to you." (I'll be waiting by the phone).

I would love to know what McCain thinks he would say if he ever did call that reporter back. "I do remember that vote now, and I still think it's completely fair for insurance companies to cover Viagra but not prescription birth control"? "I thought about it, and covering pills for men's sex drives is way more important than providing women with basic health care"?

Let's find out for ourselves. Help us call out McCain's campaign on his choice-related votes. Since he 'doesn't duck an issue,' I'm sure he'll be glad to come clean about his anti-choice positions to the public.
