John McCain on How Not to Frame a Speech

Perhaps an all-too-fitting backdrop from a recent economic speech delivered in Youngstown, Ohio by John McCain:

Standing before a nearly shuttered factory pocked with broken windows in a city devastated by the erosion of its industrial base, John McCain on Tuesday urged Americans to reject the "siren song of protectionism" and embrace free trade.

McCain suggested to the five remaining workers at the factory that, "if you just hold on...sometimes life will surprise you."

McCain is no stranger to poor timing, as MSNBC saw fit to interrupt a speech on progress in Iraq with illustrative proof of the opposite a couple of weeks ago.
