McCain and Mittster Sittin' in a Tree...

But are they k-i-s-s-i-n-g? Only the McCainBot 2008 knows for sure. Look as Mitt gives the droid-in-need-of oil money a loving gaze after a bruising primary hatefest, as the flip-flopping, former homo-friendly Massachusetts governor stumped for McCain in Utah. The MSM is buzzing about Mitt as a potential VP running mate. Bring it on, John.
Romney joined McCain at a fundraiser in Salt Lake City yesterday and is set to accompany him to another fundraiser in Denver this evening. It is familiar territory for Romney, whose family has roots in Utah and who lived there for several years. Romney raised $6.3 million in Utah, more than from his home state of Massachusetts and second only to his haul from California, during his bid for the GOP nomination.
McCain, by contrast, has raised only about $200,000 from the state. As a result, a vast population of Republican donors in the state is nowhere near to tapping out its allowed $4,600 maximum donation to McCain. The pair's spin through the Mountain West is notable given the palpable disdain that existed between them during the primary.
After the jump, you have to see what Senator Lindsey Graham said about McCain and Holy Joe.
