He's Just Not Making Sense Anymore

Not that he ever really did. John McCain, in North Carolina just now:
You might ask "how do you cut income taxes for 90% of Americans when more than 40% pay no income taxes right now? How do you reduce the number "0?" Well, that's the key to Barack Obama's whole plan. Since you can't reduce taxes on those who pay $0, the Government would write them all checks called a tax-credit, and the Treasury will have to cover those checks by taxing other people, including a lot of folks just like Joe.
"...the plumber who isn't a plumber and who is in violation of tax laws," he failed to add.

Ok...I'm not an expert on tax policy, but it seems to me that that "40% of Americans pay no income taxes" is a bit of a stretch. I think the real figure on that is below 5%.

McCain/Palin: Liars from Hell.

Update: MSNBC is reporting that Sarah Palin brought up Rev. Jeremiah Wright on her campaign plane this morning. Ummm...Sarah...do you REALLY want to go there?
