Under unrelenting questioning from Jay Leno, McCain throws the POW card:
“For a million dollars,” Jay Leno asked Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., today, “how many houses do you have?”
“Could I just mention to you, Jay, that, at a moment of seriousness. I spent five-and-a-half years in a prison cell,” McCain said. “I didn’t have a house. I didn’t have a kitchen table. I didn’t have a table. I didn’t have a chair. And I didn’t spend those five-and-a-half years because, not because I wanted to get a house when I got out.”
Daddy Yankee called Mr. McCain “a fighter for the Hispanic community” and “a fighter for the immigration issue.’’ Mr. McCain, who noted that his wife, Cindy, had gone to Central High School, said, “I just want to say thank you, Daddy Yankee.’’
The New York Times suggests that “Dame mas gasolina’ is usually understood as a double entendre that has little to do with fossil fuels,” while the Los Angeles Times doubts McCain would have name-dropped the song if he had known it was “loaded with sexual references.” Though, I don’t see any contradiction with his past treatment of women. When asked about the sexual allusions, a campaign spokesman declined to comment.
