Yes, that’s so:
Two hours later, the bailout plan that McCain had boasted of working for was defeated in the House, with McCain’s fellow Republicans siding solidly against it. […]
“This bill failed because Barack Obama and the Democrats put politics ahead of country,” he [McCain’s senior policy advisor Doug Holtz-Eakin] said.
Yep: Republican candidate McCain can’t get his own party to vote for the financial rescue plan, and obviously this is Obama’s fault! Also, the House Republicans refused to pass the bill because Pelosi gave a mean speech which hurt their feelings — so it’s also Pelosi’s fault!
In other news, I just discovered that the Iraq War wasn’t Bush’s fault either. After all, if the Democrats hadn’t voted for it, then Bush couldn’t have started the war, right? Right?
Blame Liberals First! Blame Liberals First! Blame Liberals First!
Update 2008-10-04: At 52′ 50″ into the US vice presidential debate, Palin accused the Democratic campaign of engaging in too much “finger-pointing backwards” and “doing the blame game” regarding Bush’s policy on Israel, and said that, hey, all administrations make mistakes! Hahah. Roy Edroso was right: blame liberals, unless you can’t, then blame everyone.
