Matthew Yglesias: McCain: Vote for Me and I’ll Create an International Crisis: Lately, John McCain’s been trying to dine out on Joe Biden’s weird remark that electing Barack Obama would somehow prompt others to “test” him within six months. But the rhetoric around it is a bit weird:
“I have been tested,” McCain said, with a certain gritted-teeth look at the state fairgrounds in New Mexico. “I’m gonna test them. They’re not gonna test me.”
So rather than respond to an international crisis provoked by others, McCain intends to provoke one himself? Why? Sounds dangerous.
