McCain on Leno: Mistakes Were Made

It was a bevy of one-liners last night as John McCain appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”  In the riffs on his own campaign, however, he does acknowledge half-hearted fund-raising while insisting, “I love being the underdog.”

“We’re doing so poorly,” McCain told Leno, “that I
thought maybe I would announce on this show that I’m running for
president.”

He turned his bite to Alberto Gonzales’s resignation (“it should have happened a long time ago”), Donald Rumsfeld (“one of the worst secretaries of defense in history”) and Larry Craig (“disgraceful.”)

Asked if there would be a McCain girl, ala Obamagirl, he said, “Yes. Bea Arthur.”
