Watch McCain's Tucker Bounds Squirm and Deceive on CNN

Update: Laura Bush says Sarah Palin "lacks sufficient foreign policy experience" -- guess she hasn't talked to ol' Tucker Bounds.

I must say that bush has made me ashamed to be a american. That his beliefs has harmed every aspect of american life except the weathly 2%. He's a spoiled rich boy and it comes out in his
beliefs. Even at his present age I see him as a spoiled little boy.


Tucker Bounds is a dimwit.

He's perfect Republican "Presidential Press Spokesperson" material. He can stand up there and not answer questions like nobody else...
