John McCain on Foreign Travel

I don't usually do this, but the irony (I think irony, could be pathos) was too good to pass up. From TPM, via a Time Magazine article dated March 21st, 2008:

Flanked by fellow Senators Joe Lieberman and Lindsey Graham, McCain noted they'd undertaken their week long fact-finding tour of Iraq, Jordan, Israel, England and France as members of Congress's Armed Services committee -- not as some sort of campaign foreign road show. Perhaps, but discussing international affairs with foreign leaders and enhancing McCain's presidential hopes aren't mutually exclusive. Still, McCain acted the apt pupil. "I wish every senator, every senator would make this same trip," McCain said, noting several of the first-hand educational experiences he'd gotten. "They'd be better informed."
Somebody better tell Senator McCain that you can use the Internet* to look stuff up now. His best bet is probably to say nothing until November.

*And that the Internet is on computers* now.

**And that a computer is a television with a typewriter attached to it
