McCain Goes Yard On Obama - "You Aren't Qualified To Carry My Flak Jacket!"

Note to any candidate (R or D) who takes (or wishes to take) a swipe at John McCain - You have ZERO room for error so Check. Your. Spelling.

Because John Weaver and Company sure are.

Earlier today, Barack Obama punched back at John McCain's criticism of Obama's vote against the Iraq funding bill in the Senate.

Except that Obama was so excited to engage McCain (oh boy oh boy oh boy!) that he misspelled a key word in the punch back.

Which Weaver and Co. then went Yard on.

Which should get them some very nice play in a slow holiday news weekend.

From McCain's statement:

ARLINGTON, VA - U.S. Senator John McCain has issued the following in response to a statement by Sen. Barack Obama:

"While Senator Obama's two years in the U.S. Senate certainly entitle him to vote against funding our troops, my service and experience combined with conversations with military leaders on the ground in Iraq lead me to believe that we must give this new strategy a chance to succeed because the consequences of failure would be catastrophic to our nation's security.

"By the way, Senator Obama, it's a 'flak' jacket, not a 'flack' jacket."
