"John McCain calls himself a maverick, but he votes with George Bush 95% of the time. That's not a maverick. That's a sidekick."

"The Bush-McCain Republicans inherited the strongest economy in history and drove it into a ditch. They cut taxes on the wealthiest of us, and passed the pain to the least of us. They ran up the debt gave huge subsidies to oil companies and now they're asking for four more years? How bout four more months."

There's something about the camera zoom and the way he says "that's a sidekick" that just cracks me up.

Devilstower at dKos has a great graphic.
