So, while Barack Obama was in Europe, getting elected Chancellor of Germany and making love to the French, his Republican opponent John McCain was trying to show how down to Earth he is by “assisting” some poor, innocent woman with her grocery shopping.
Afterward, McCain helped re-stock the shelves and meekly asked the nice young store clerk where he might find the canned prunes. He then proceeded to tell him the story of the time he needed to take the ferry over to Shelbyville. So he tied an onion to his belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. ‘Give me five bees for a quarter,’ you’d say. The important thing was that he had an onion on his belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have any white onions, because of the war; the only thing you can get was those big yellow ones.
Oh, that John McCain! He’s so old.
