Sen. McCain Throws Some Shade At Obama: Not Only Is Your Bus Ugly, It’s Ugly And Canadian

I very much miss John McCain. It seems to have been forever since he was last embroiled in a story arch within this complicated soap opera we call the news, and I miss writing about him!

Luckily, he decided to change that today when, while on the Senate floor, he called Barack Obama‘s campaign bus “ugly.” Oh, and also? He kind of insulted Canada… or, at least, the Canadian bus industry.

Daaamn, McCain:

I must say again I have never seen an uglier bus than a Canadian one. He is traveling around on a Canadian bus touting American jobs.

The bus in question is indeed made by a Canadian company called Prevost. But, as CNN reports, the company used to “outfit” the bus actually happens to be American, and has designed buses for various musical acts and presidential candidates over the years. Candidates like… John McCain!

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer spoke with Wolf Blitzer today about McCain’s comments and the ensuing scandal they have caused. (BusGate? OccupyThatUglyBus?):

I think that’s a lot of politics from Senator McCain.As we’ve talked about this before, the Secret Service acquired the bus from an American company. It is made by the same company that made Mr. McCain’s very famous “Straight Talk Express.”
