McCain Brings the Sarcasm

I was never enthusiastic about McCain as a presidential candidate, but I have to give him credit for his stone cold sarcasm. He really lowered the boom on Sen. Obama:

"I would like to apologize to you for assuming that your private assurances to me regarding your desire to cooperate in our efforts to negotiate bipartisan lobbying reform legislation were sincere.

“I'm embarrassed to admit that after all these years in politics I failed to interpret your previous assurances as typical rhetorical gloss.

“I understand how important the opportunity to lead your party's effort to exploit this issue must seem to a freshman Senator, and I hold no hard feelings over your earlier disingenuousness." http://www.suntimes.com/output/news/cst-nws-obama07.html

Ouch. You have to admit, the man can write.
