“I Got A Better Chance Of Getting Laid.”

October 1st, 2008at 11:17pm Posted by Eli

I think this is the money quote from the Rolling Stone’s merciless McCain takedown. Bear in mind that this exchange takes place after the POW experience that McCain claims made him a better man:

On the grounds between the two brick colleges, the chitchat between the scion of four-star admirals and the son of a prizefighter turns to their academic travels; both colleges sponsor a trip abroad for young officers to network with military and political leaders in a distant corner of the globe.

“I’m going to the Middle East,” Dramesi says. “Turkey, Kuwait, Lebanon, Iran.”

“Why are you going to the Middle East?” McCain asks, dismissively.

“It’s a place we’re probably going to have some problems,” Dramesi says.

“Why? Where are you going to, John?”

“Oh, I’m going to Rio.”

“What the hell are you going to Rio for?”

McCain, a married father of three, shrugs.

“I got a better chance of getting laid.”

Charming.  If that’s what he was like after his transformative experience, I don’t even want to think about what he was like before.
