McCain Still Obsessed With Chicago's Sausage

Yesterday, U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and Sarah Palin got together and rallied like it was 2008 in support of McCain's senatorial reelection efforts. The event had sound bites galore (personal favorite: Palin's "lamestream media" comment), but it was McCain who caught our ear with a comment he made regarding the recently passed health care reform. Just as he did when the bill was first approved by the Senate back in December, McCain called the bill, "sleazy Chicago-style sausage-making," a message he's been plugging all week. How long Sen. McCain plans on channeling Sinclair only he knows, but when coupled with the First Lady's opinion of Chicago-style pizza, it creates an anti-Chicago food movement that's a bipartisan effort we just can't get behind.
