From the Archives

This is gonna hurt:

The transcript of the money quote:

STEWART: You may end up going against a Senate colleague. Perhaps McCain, perhaps Frist.

BIDEN: Look, John McCain is a personal friend, a great friend, and I would be honored to run with or against John McCain because I think the country would be better off, would be well off no matter who wins.

STEWART: Did I hear “with”?

BIDEN: You know, John McCain and I think…

STEWART: Don’t become cottage cheese, my friend, say it!

BIDEN: The answer is yes, I hope John, I wanted John to run with John Kerry last time out, and I’d ask him to do that.

  1. …basically, Biden told the Daily Show back in 2005 that he urged John McCain to switch parties and run as John Kerry’s running mate.
    To make matters worse for McCain, he denied this fact initially when asked by the NY Times, only to completely blow up at a NYT reporter, when confronted on his lie, finally admitting it, and claiming that it was common knowledge!

    The video of this is very embarrassing for McCain, and reenforces a lot of the negative perceptions people have about him.
    More info below, with the interview transcript, supporting links, etc. Feel free to yoink at your leisure…
