Q: What do Bush’s balls taste like?

A: I don’t fucking know. Ask John McCain.

The following is a statement by Senator John McCain on the debate over the Bush Administration’s decision to allow Dubai Ports World of the United Arab Emirates to manage U.S. sea ports.

“We all need to take a moment and not rush to judgment on this matter without knowing all the facts. The President’s leadership has earned our trust in the war on terror, and surely his administration deserves the presumption that they would not sell our security short.
See, that’s just the problem, though. They haven’t earned our trust, but in fact have undermined it at every opportunity, and therefore don’t deserve the presumption that they will do best by the American people on any issue. And no amount of thinly-guised or overt accusations of partisanship or racism can distract from the fact that there’s just no reason to trust this administration with the stewardship of this country, even (and perhaps especially) on national security. This is the administration who ignored warnings about al Qaida strikes, cooked intelligence, deliberately conflated bin Laden and Hussein, outed a CIA operative working on WMD proliferation in a game of political retribution, did a half-assed job in Afghanistan, mismatched the war in Iraq from day one, sanctioned torture, spied on Americans, and the rest of the miles-long list of fuck-ups, all in the name of national security. The president’s “leadership” hasn’t earned him anything except the well-deserved title of Worst President Ever. End o’ story.
