Did McCain just get one right?

David Catanese, one of the last holdouts over at Politico, has a great tidbit today. Pretty funny, and a rather good move for someone who usually drinks the kum-bay-yah kool-aid of the left:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is happy to go along with the bipartisan seating arrangements at President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night, but he’d like both sides to reign in the cheerleading that’s become a staple of such addresses.

“Might be nice, maybe we cut back a little bit on all the jumping up and down, which I think frankly distracts from any president’s speech when it’s interrupted every 30 seconds by people jumping up and down,” McCain said Sunday on CBS’ “Face of the Nation.”

Calling it a “good idea” that’s been a bit overblown, McCain said he would sit with Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.) Tuesday night, but appeared more interested in reducing the amount of applause during the speech.

Oh, you want to be all bipartisan and hold hands while the president speaks reads the teleprompter? I think that’s a mighty fine idea. And you know what else? Let’s all of us not cheer for a man who clearly doesn’t deserve applause.

Sadly, McLame is probably too old to realize that he’s just falling for another liberal trap. No doubt the lefties will be carrying on like it’s the second coming of Christ. Oh well, at least he tried.
