Unlike John Cox, who was thrilled with his 41 votes, unhinged McLame is furious about his poor performance, netting just 60 more votes than his closest rival, Cox, who was dead last. McCain tried to downplay the significance of the poll, but the underlying rage was undeniable.
Republican presidential candidate John McCain on Monday shrugged off his 10th-place finish in the Iowa straw poll this past weekend, calling such contests meaningless.
Of course he knows the meaningless result. 10 out of 11, John. 10 out of 11. That’s 1%, Johnny.
McCain, who garnered 101 votes, said he was surprised to get that many.
“I thought it would be zero,” McCain said.
Sure you did. Bristling at reporters, McCain reiterated: “I think straw polls are meaningless and that’s all.” Then he stomped off in a huff.
Congratulations on beating John Cox, Senator McCain. Well done.
