Dark Phoenix

Spencer Ackerman does analogies and asks the question that needs to be asked: Is John McCain responsible for the deaths of billions of D’Bari? It’s possible. Meanwhile, this came up as the two of us were watching a bit of McCain on the stump down in Florida. He has an odd manner — he makes a lot of jokes and he’s genuinely funny, but he sounds really angry, it’s more like a Lewis Black routine than a stump speech. What’s more, his efforts to appear concerned about the economy “my friends, we’re all know about the housing, um, subrime mortgage, um, crisis” continue to be unconvincing — I’m not sure McCain does know.
