McCain IS ignorant

Remember how last week I said John McCain was grumpy and ignorant? It was basically because McCain belittled the fuel conservation suggestions of Barack Obama, even though those common-sense suggestions are backed by all sensible Republicans.

On today’s ABC (US) Word News, host Charlie Gibson interviewed ExxonMobil CEO and chairman Rex Tillerson. The story on ABC’s website said, “Tillerson's suggestions for energy efficiency echoed recommendations by presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama, who called for tire-inflation and proper car tuneups to provide relief to distressed voters.”

To me, what Tillerson was describing in the entire interview seemed to be beyond the comprehension of McCain, who has no real energy policy apart from “drill everywhere!” and “more nukes!” So McCain isn’t just out of step with his own party, nor is he just out of step with ordinary Americans, he’s also apparently out of step with reality. Unless it’s all because he’s just ignorant and proud of it.
