Only in America Could such a putz be feted for such a crappy speech. YMMV. I brought a few main things away from this:
“It’s not about me talking about me. It’s about you talking about me talking about you.”
“I support the right of unborn rural Ohio proto-humans to wield handguns when they visit gay hospitals.”
“I staunchly opposed the Iraq War from the start, in the Illinois Senate.”
“After 8 years of Bush and McCain, it’s time for 10 years of me throughout the 57 states.”
“I’m not going to question John McCain’s patriotism, so he shouldn’t question my . . . anything. But if he were a real man, he’d invade Pakistan and hunt bin Laden down in a cave armed only with a Bowie knife, just as I will, if elected.”
“I have a dromedary!”
"If you have a problem, go meditate or go on a vacation. Don't think about it."
