Reason why you don't campaign with your 95 year-old mother, No. 43

November 10, 2007 10:33 AM

Because she might say something like this:

"As far as the Salt Lake City thing, he's a Mormon and the Mormons of Salt Lake City had caused that scandal.  And to clean that up, again, it's not a subject," Roberta McCain said.

John McCain quickly stepped in: "The views of my mothers are not necessarily the views of mine."

"Well, that's my view and you asked me," Roberta answered.

Hilarious.  And the reason he trotted her out in the first place was to show he's not too old and wacky... because his mom's still with it at 95!

Totally reminds me of the time Newt Gingrich's mom told Connie Chung that Hillary was is a bitch.  Misty memories. 

UPDATE: Just saw McCain's plural reference to "mothers," which I'd assume was a typo if not for the subject/verb agreement.  Freudian slip about the Mormons?
