February 29, 2008
Sigmund Freud would be proud. Or would that be, Sigmund Sidney Freud?
fake hearty laughter after I mop my flop sweat before I tell you what I reeeealllly meant.
While McCain was elaborating on the "stark differences" between his Democratic opponents' positions and his own, he slipped up.
"I'm a proud conservative liberal republic -- conservative Republican," he said.Uh-ohhhh! Did you hear that collective, Republican panic-attacked, hysterical, eye-popping, Home Alone scream?
After joining with the Richardson, Texas, crowd in hearty laughter, McCain went on to say what he initially meant.Ohhhh! Hahahaa, hohohoho, chortle and guffaw! It was just a crazy Freudian slip. Please, folks, let me join you in
"Hello, easy there," he said. "Let me say this. I am a proud conservative Republican and both of my possible or likely opponents are liberal Democrats.""Eaaasy there", Buckaroos. Myohmyhowdy! Isn't he just a caution? Oh. Let. Me. Catch. My. Breath. My stars, Sidney, you missed your calling at Open Mic Night at the Improv.
