I don't know if you've had the opportunity to listen to the Bill Press Show on the radio. Here in Columbus, Ohio, the Bill Press Show is carried 6am-9am on WVKO 1580 (just before the very popular Stephanie Miller Show). Bill Press has a list of 101 Reasons to Vote Against John McCain. Here was today's reason, #77:
#77: John McCain is more of a game show host than a candidate, offering up gimmick after gimmick. First it was the gas tax holiday, but now - he wants taxpayers to give $300 million to whoever develops the next new electric battery. Too bad the Japanese are already five years ahead of the US in developing the next generation battery.
Is John McCain just a little behind the times in knowing what is out there in automobile technology? Besides, where would we get the money to give $300 million away to someone? Would it come out of McCain's pocket?
