Rich But No Cash

Rich But No Cash

Rich of Big And is singing on John McCain's behalf, which is fine in and of itself. But then he speaks for one who can't speak for himself anymore:
"Before playing Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line," he declared that the song was tantamount to a McCain endorsement.

"Somebody's got to walk the line in the country. They've got to walk it unapologetically," he said. "And I'm sure Johnnny Cash would have been a John McCain supporter if he was still around."

Actually, Cash backed Democratic president Jimmy Carter."

Never, NEVER take the name of Johnny Cash in vain.

More thoughts on Michigan and Florida:

  • Jerome Armstrong of MyDD has a quid pro quo theory: "Obviously, some sort of deal got worked out, Clinton said she would not put her name up for nomination, and Obama agreed to reinstate the Florida & Michigan delegates."

  • "We deeply appreciate and value Senator Obama's perspective on this important issue," said the co-chairs of the credentials committee, Alexis Herman, James Roosevelt Jr. and Eliseo Roques-Arroyo, Translation: Yes, sir, Mr. Nominee, sir.

  • Karen Thurman, Florida Democratic Party chair, is sticking to the Count Every Vote rhetoric that Florida Democrats emphasized in the months-long battle: "Today is a proud day for all of us who fought so hard to ensure Floridians votes are fully counted."

  • Michigan Senator Carl Levin: "Nyah nyah, nyah nyah nyah." OK, I made that one up. But you just know he's thinking it.
