McCain: I’m Going To “Whip” Obama At The Debate

 

Check out this latest gaffe from John McCain: He boasted that he intends to “whip” Barack Obama’s posterior at the debate this Wednesday.

“We’re going to spend a lot of time and after I whip his you-know-what in this debate, we’re going to be going out 24/7,” McCain told a crowd of volunteers at the campaign’s national headquarters in Virginia.

For the record, none of us here at TPM think McCain actually intended the potentially-nefarious alternative meaning of whipping Obama. We just think it was a painfully awkward and stupid thing to say.
