Making the Rounds

John McCain and the Applesauce Aisle

By Garance Franke-Ruta
There's been a great deal of online and televised merry-making at Sen. John McCain's expense over a video clip of him going food shopping yesterday in Bethlehem, Penn., while Sen. Barack Obama was in Berlin. The wags at 23/6 Media have gone so far as to dub McCain's remarks on the surge of troops in Iraq delivered in the cheese aisle of a supermarket his "Dairy Case Address." Now further footage from that fateful trip -- featuring an applesauce avalanche, above, has hit the blogs.

This is an instance of television leading the way for the online masses. The applesauce clip was played by CNN yesterday, then picked up by Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" last night (the McCain segment starts 3:05 minutes in). And it's still making the rounds on TV -- MSNBC just played the clip this afternoon.

Places everyone! President Drudge is almost in the room...

Silence!!!!!!!!!

Area 51 is not actually an area. Not in Idaho, anyways. Out here, we think of area 51 as a badge, yes a stinking badge!

Wow, I think I just saw it. Three nations--Russia, America and Iraq.

Russia goes bankrupt due to overspending in the military.

America walked over to another park and slam dunked on a really big guy in the court.

Iraq--Lookin good!


Contact a FBI or government official and ask him those questions. Say, "What do you think about Iraq?"

We don't have a lot of FBI guys in Idaho, but I think they would say, "That is a matter of national security, and I am unable to comment on Iraq at this time."

See, my answers are better so in a way you are getting better answers from me. Area 51 is my badge. Some people at the very very top of the govt like Orrin Hatch may be listening. And they want regular citizen to join the fight in the FBI, but they can't recruit everyone.

So Orrin, where is my badge? It's in area 51, go get it.

Now I will be more inclined to eating cereal and engaging in other harmless activities.

Quote from the movie:

"I believe it."

Larry Craig is scheduled to appear in court on September 10, 2008. It's sad that McCain is letting this issue remain on the back burner. It's like he is holding a carrot out for a friend, or he is blind to the matter at hand.

Very sad. Mr. Craig is a victim of police bs. I pray that the men involved with this case, unless it is an inside job, find pictures laying around that little busty jewish girls draw. I miss you. :)

Breast cancer deaths in America have been declining for more than a decade. Much of that success is due to early detection and better treatments for women. I strongly encourage women to get a mammogram.

McCain says I was wrong in code. Okay, I have another idea. What if it was a top down suicide. A four chamber ordeal to help a man who is aging.

If I am right, please post a story about a pixie.

To the left is life. There are no traps. You go to your room and life goes.

To the right is potential death. A man awaits. No one knows who he is except for himself.

Robert knows the spot. He stands there. If he looks to the left, he gets shot. If he looks straight, he should smile. If he looks left, he walks away. Just like his brother, his programme did come on El Vira.

Slamming trunks, missing heads... terrible year.

Three guys. RFK, Morales and bald guy. RFK tells Morales he is not in charge, and he says the same to the other.

Morales since he is not in charge decides to test the area. He scopes it out.

Tall police officer talked with CIA probably bald guy. I am as well.

Or he was contacted by a third CIA man. Because he shone brighter than the rest.

Many, many hands... that was good.

Oh, I just watched RFK assination stuff and it was good. Will I do it? No, it has already been done. OOoooo the mob looked good. Did they do it?

This gun was developed by the M9 in England. Who are the M9? They are like George Bush times 9 plus a touchdown.

"I am the alpha male." --I am ready to cash that in yesterday.

The razor gun cuts fingers off. It is a neat little gadget. I have never seen one in real life, only in dreams. In very dangerous situations it is nice to have an element of surprise. Imagine that you and your enemy are face to face. Life and blood on the line. You look at Rebel Commander Chris making sandwiches and looking innocent. What do you do? Stop Russian, stop!

When you go to fire, M9 developed a gun that shoots out a razor like a switchblade knife. The razor cuts the finger off of the shooter. I may have seen the effects of this gun.

I am in a bubble, and there is no blogging my way out.

The next shot is good. So if you get one of these guns keep on shooting. My Dad in a dream tricked DJ into showing him how the gun works. So intense, he saw the razor and it didn't cut off his finger. Then he told Dionne, go ahead and shoot. Dionne thought he would get his finger cut off again. He was trying to trick my Dad. Instead a bullet was fired. Dionne didn't know that the razor had already been deployed by DJ.

The men in black told me that George Bush would be strong enough mentally to get his finger cut off, and still use the other hand to get a shot off. I do not George Bush. What little I do know scares me. He said "God Fearing Americans".

I do not like the Bushes and I don't think I ever will.

The McCains are the best best we have by far.

Obama may surprise us, if McCain even exists.

McCain's campaign gets more and more pathetic by the minute. He can't win on the issues so now he's trying to Rove his way to victory. Unfortunately for him, America isn't falling for this crap a third time. McCain needs to just hang 'em up. He's already tarnished what was once an admirable career. Sad really.

Posted by: Medicine Man | July 26, 2008 10:53 PM

All the smear that once so offended the Democrats when Bush did it, is now okay in the name of Obama.

The Obamaphiles are worse than the old Bush gang.

McCain was once famously slandered out of the Republican primaries. That's beginning to look like sandlot baseball compared to the stuff coming from Obama's disciples.

THE MEDIA TRAVELED WITH OBAMA ALL AROUND THE WORLD LOOKING FOR A STORY OF A BIG GAFFE AND THERE WASN'T ANY. NOW THERE TRYING TO MAKE THEIR OWN GAFFES ON HIS SPEECH IN BERLIN. ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW HIM SEEMING TO PERSUMPTIOUS, AND AMERICAN VOTERS MIGHT NOT LIKE IT. NOBODY TOLD THE MEDIA THEY SHOULD GO WITH HIM AROUND THE WORLD HOPING FOR A BIG STORY AND BE UPSET THAT THEY DIDN'T GET ONE. IF THEY WANTED A STORY THEY SHOULD HAVE STAYED HOME WITH MCCAIN HE'S MADE GAFFES ALL WEEK. MCCAIN SAID THAT IRAQ BORDERS AFGANISTAN, MCCAIN SAID THAT THE SURGE BEGAN THE ANBAR AWAKENING AND HE SAID THAT A 16 MONTH TIMETABLE WAS A PRETTY GOOD IDEA. HOWEVER, THESE WERE GAFFES ON MCCAIN AND NOT OBAMA, THEREFORE THEIR NOT IMPORTANT. ONLY OBAMA'S GAFFES GET PLAYED ON THE AIR REPEATEDLY. SOON THEY WILL START RUNNING POLLS OF OBAMA'S WORLD TRIP. ITS FUNNY HOW THE MEDIA CRITICIZES OBAMA'S SUCCESS ABROAD WITH ALL OF THE FANS AND ANXIOUS LEADERS AROUND THE WORLD HOPING FOR AN OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AS BEING PRESUMPTIOUS INSTEAD OF THE RESULT OF A GREAT LEADER. MAYBE THE MEDIA LIKES THE IDEA OF HAVING OUR PRESIDENT HATED OR DON'T WANT TO BE THE BEACON OF HOPE AROUND THE WORLD AFTER ALL.

SEE MCCAIN EAT HIS WORDS AND SIGN ON TO OBAMAS 16 MONTH WITHDRAWL.

MCCAIN SAID A 16 MONTH TIMETABLE IN IRAQ WOULD BE A PRETTY GOOD IDEA:

Obama went bowling, looked like a complete buffoon, and bowled what, a 37? The media looked away. I have seen no "bowling" videos making the rounds online. The supermarket visit wasn't buffoonish, it was the media spin that has called it as much.

Look at the video of the applesauce tumbling two inches to the floor, think about it's widespread characterization as an "avalanche" which McCain had to be "saved" from, and honestly ask yourself why.

It's the theatre of the absurd, but the star isn't McCain, it's the media.

Posted by: Vince | July 26, 2008 8:07 PM

This goes along with Gene Robinson's Friday column on "luck" not being about luck at all. Sen. McCain's staff disastrously staged events all week -- betwen the kraut haus, going to a cancer event to remind us all of his melanoma risks to planning a visit to an oil rig during a hurricane. Yes, it was bad "luck" that the storm came but anybody with a brain knows it's that season; yes it didn't look like McCain knocked down the applesauce but you sent him into a freakin' supermarket to stroll around the aisles? What did they expect? This is hilarious ... and JakeD for once I agree with you ... the Colbert Make McCain Exciting challenge was fabulous -- I like the Madonna "Vogue" video with McCain's head on a bunch of her dancers (his speech actually rhymed with her verse) and for some insane reason there's one with a squirrel attacking a bird feeder that just knocks me out. Priceless....

See the little blue box above the Comments section? "The Trail"? Look at the story list. Near the bottom is one about McCain meeting with the Dalai Lama -- placed *below* the applesauce story. That says it all.

McCain could meet with God, and they'd squeeze it in between the applesauce story and the Dalai Lama.

...and the God story would focus on the way he ties his shoes, and how that shows what a befuddled old man he is.

Posted by: Vince | July 26, 2008 1:39 PM

Actually, McCain corrected himself midsentence and changed the word he used to "horizon", but you won't be finding that mentioned in many of the media stories that will be flying around about it in the next few days. Every quote I've seen so far only quotes a fragment of his sentence, leaving out his correction every time. Every time.

Posted by: Vince | July 26, 2008 1:24 PM

During a CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer and Mccain. Mccain said that a 16 months timetable to withdrawl from Iraq was a good Idea. Mccain has never agreed to any timetable. Now that Pres. Bush, PM Maliki has signed on to Obama's 16 month strategy now Mccain has also signed on. Mccain also is in denial. Wolf asked Mccain if he was president and PM Maliki persist on a 16 month withdrawl what would he do? Mccains answer was he wont because He know PM Maliki very well and he knows he has elections comming up. Therefore, Mccain is saying that Maliki is calling for a timetable to withdrawl from Iraq to win an election. Why else would he say, I know him, He wont persist on a withdrawl from Iraq, and he has elections comming up.

Posted by: Greg | July 26, 2008 1:07 PM

Please tell me the number of americans that have any confidence in McCain is dropping! If it weren't so sad (and scary) it would be funny - but the reality of it is that some will still vote for this bumbling and incompetent candidate - McCain is just in way way way over his head.

This video is a gleaming example of what McCain has become. It's sad actually.

Posted by: JDB | July 26, 2008 12:06 PM

Here's a telling little epilogue: I just read on another blog (also mocking McCain) that it was actually a member of the media that knocked over the applesauce.

So the media follow him to the grocery store, knock over shelf stock, and then make the whole thing a story of what a goof McCain is.

Pretty much sums up the media's role in this campaign.

Worth noting: despite the infatuation of the European public and the American media, the American voters are decidedly undecided. This is a tight race, with some polls showing a 2-point gap -- within the margin of error.

Applesauce stories only serve to reveal the small-mindedness of the media and Obama's followers.

I read a couple of blurbs about this incident. They describe McCain being saved from an "avalanche" of shelf food that he didn't even notice. Then I watched the video... Three or four cans fell off the bottom shelf, McCain turns right around, and the mess is cleaned up.

It is beyond silly to make hay out of this video. It's been completely mischaracterized, and it's just another example of the media's determination to make McCain look bad. They'll put a negative spin on "Good Morning" if it comes out of McCain's mouth. If Obama says it, it's profound.

It will be broadcasted live on CNN at noon EST. Senator Obama will be there. In 2004, both Bush and Kerry attended.

GFR: have you considered getting a real job with a real news reporting organization rather than just linking to same cutesy videos as everyone else?

At least Newsweek is trying to do real McCain reporting:

And, for balance, perhaps you could ask your supervisor if they'd let you ask BHO about this outrageous lie:

http://lonewacko.com/blog/archives/007849.html

I mean, really: BHO has a lie in a prominent place on his website, he's said that same lie in speeches, and still the WaPo is too corrupt to call him on it. What does he need to do, put up an "I'm a liar" neon sign?

Stop linking to stupid videos, start doing some real reporting.

I think Mccain while he was there was doing a little shopping for himself. Some Applesauce, prunes, preparation-h and the Depends are on sale.

Posted by: Anonymous | July 25, 2008 8:22 PM

Today on a Cnn interview Mccain was asked if he was president and PM Maliki was still the PM and insisted on the troops leaving would he agree with him. Mccain first accused Maliki of saying he wanted a troop withdrawl to win the election in Iraq, Yet another attack from Mccain stating everybody is willing to lose a war to win an election. This was the same attack he accused Obama . Mccain went on to say that Maliki wanted a 16 month withdrawl according to conditions on the ground inwhich Maliki didn't say was was conditional. Then he said he knows PM Maliki very well and said he wouldn't withdrawl the troops. Wolf Splitzer asked why not and Mccain said he wont. I think Mccain is being very arrogant and he is guilty of the same attackes he accusing Obama of the surge. Mccain has not acknowledge that President Bush and Maliki has agreed to a timetable for withdrawl and PM Malikits latest statements of wanting the troops out in 2010. Mccain also without hesitation said he would move the capital of Isreal to Jeruselum as soon as he became president. You guys really need to see this interview with Mccain and Wolf Blitzer Mccain has made allot of controversial statements..

Yes, America would be in a bigger mess with Obama as President. That's why I predict he will not be sworn in on January 20, 2009.

Could America be in a bigger mess!?

Republicans have us at war in two countries as a result of Republican lies and deceptions, and we might be in two more wars--Iran and Pakistan--by November. We have alienated the entire Muslim world and most of the rest.

The dollar has lost 60% of its value against the euro, and the once mighty dollar is losing its reserve currency role.

The Republicans' policies have driven up the price of both oil and gold by 400%.

Inflation is in double digits. Employment is falling.

The Republican economy in the 21st century has been unable to create net new jobs for Americans except for low wage domestic services such as waitresses, bartenders, retail clerks and hospital orderlies.

Republican deregulation brought about fraud in mortgage lending and dangerous financial instruments which have collapsed the housing market, leaving a million or more homeowners facing foreclosure. The financial system is in disarray and might collapse from insolvency.

The trade and budget deficits have exploded. The US trade deficit is larger than the combined trade deficits of every deficit country in the world.

The US can no longer finance its wars or its own government and relies on foreign loans to function day to day. To pay for its consumption, the US sells its existing assets--companies, real estate, toll roads, whatever it can offer--to foreigners.

Republicans have run roughshod over the US Constitution, Congress, the courts and civil liberties. Republicans have made it perfectly clear that they believe that our civil liberties make us unsafe--precisely the opposite view of our Founding Fathers. Yet, Republicans regard themselves as the Patriotic Party.

The Republicans have violated the Nuremberg prohibitions against war crimes, and they have violated the Geneva Conventions against torture and abuse of prisoners. Republican disregard for human rights ranks with that of history's great tyrants.

The Republicans have put in place the foundation for a police state, and have no problem using it against fellow US citizens!

We must get the Republicans totally out of power, or we will have no country left for any of us!

Was that a Secret Service agent rushing in to protect McCain against the avalanche?

You think mccain was trying to hit on that single mama? He didn't look too interested or happy in loading her cart with groceries.

Are you kidding me?! That clip where McCain's head was on Colbert's body is HILARILOUS!!!!

Posted by: JakeD | July 25, 2008 6:29 PM

Even Colbert could not make McCain exciting.

Posted by: JakeD | July 25, 2008 6:25 PM
