Oh Snap…It’s On! « The Washington Independent
It’s official. The first personal insult of the season is out there. Via The Page, Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign chief of staff Jim Messina (no relation to Loggins, I assume) went there this afternoon. Speaking to the Iowa delegation at the Democratic National Convention, Messina called Sen. John McCain a “schmuck.”
A schmuck! Granted, there’s been lots of thinly-veiled disparaging remarks and borderline patriotism-questioning, but a schmuck? Them’s fightin’ words.
Or could this Yiddish insult be a brilliantly devious scheme on the part of the Obama camp to taunt McCain into selecting Sen. Joe Lieberman [I-Conn.] as his running mate — to fight fire with fire?
A hiltsener tsung zol er bakumn!
