Senator McCain, I Do Believe Your Pants Are on Fire

Within days of asserting that "Senator Obama's word cannot be trusted" and "the fact is that I'll keep my word to the American people, and you can trust me" and proclaiming that "The most precious commodity I have with the American people is that they trust me," presumed GOP nominee John McCain replied to a question about his repeated statements that he needs to be educated about the economy by denying he ever said that shit.

Q: You have admitted that you're not exactly an expert when it comes to the economy and many have said –

McCAIN: I have not. I have not. Actually, I have not. I said that I am stronger on national security issues because of all the time I spent in the military. I'm very strong on the economy. I understand it. I have a lot more experience than my opponent.
Lies. And his breathtakingly stupid economic proposals belie any claim to be "strong on the economy."

Although he might be an "economics supergenius."
