holy change of subject batman! pow!

tpm election central:

in an interview with kdka radio in pittsburgh, pennsylvania, john mccain pow-pow-powed when asked about charges that he's an elitist who's out of touch with the american worker on kitchen-table issues.

mccain: well you know i have town hall meetings all the time, everywhere across this country, and i hear from people....

and in all due respect my friends, i know what it's like to not have a house, i know what it's like not to have a kitchen table. i know what it's like not to have a table or a chair. for five and a half years, i sat in a cell with nothing but concrete floor and three boards to sleep on.
this underscores again the degree to which the mccain campaign wants the discussion about the economy to morph into a conversation about character, rather than a discussion of, you know, actual policy differences. dems say mccain's policies show that he's out of touch with the real needs of working people. mccain replies that his pow past shows he knows what it's like to struggle, which he hopes will settle the question of whether he's out of touch or not.
hey, john, what'd you have for lunch?

i know what it's like not to have lunch for 5 1/2 years! pow!

He can use that for every single thing he's asked. And will, no doubt.

If being a POW in Vietnam for five and half years doesn't put you out of touch with American workers, I don't know what will.
