Blogger call with McCain Today

These are always fun because I get to listen to McCain off the cuff, but they are pretty predictable with talking points and such. Details of the call are over at Captain's Quarters.

At one point when McCain is discussing earmarks, he asks us to hold on. Then you hear him say, "Lindsay, I didn't say that" and then argues a bit more. It caught me off guard because I wasn't expecting him to argue with someone off line. But he was laughing at Lindsay Graham misunderstanding and getting all upset. McCain came back to the phone and made fun of Graham, saying he was unstable (jokingly!!!) and that he needed a translator when Graham was with him (southern accent dig!!???)

It was fun to hear McCain just joking around feeling confident.
