My, what a difference a desperate and politically cynical choice for VP makes.

"I have had a strong and a long relationship on national security, I've been involved in every national crisis that this nation has faced since Beirut, I understand the issues, I understand and appreciate the enormity of the challenge we face from radical Islamic extremism. "I am prepared. I am prepared. I need no on-the-job training. I wasn't a mayor for a short period of time. I wasn't a governor for a short period of time."

Extra amazing considering McCain said this just last night at the Presidential Forum on Service: (h/t Kos)

"Listen, mayors have the toughest job, I think, in America. It's easy for me to go to Washington and, frankly, be somewhat divorced from the day-to-day challenges people have."

Wow. Not only does McCain completely reverse himself on the experience gleaned from serving as mayor, he admits that it's easy for him to be "divorced from the day-to-day challenges people have."

Can you help us out?
