McCain: The Miss Teen South Carolina Of Economics

In his march towards the Republican nomination John McCain has drawn criticism for his lack of fluency when discussing the economy (it is a subject which he has conceded is not his strongest). During some of the debates, particularly when compared with someone more voluble on the topic such as Mitt Romney, McCain's answers have been portrayed by his critics as being vague and lightweight on matters of economic policy.

Well, it now turns out that someone affiliated with Ron Paul (he's still in the race!) has made a mash-up of John McCain and the infamous Miss South Carolina Teen USA, Lauren Caitlin Upton, to highlight the senator's floundering answers. Upton, in case you missed it during the 2007 pageant, gave what can only be described as a train wreck of an answer to the question of why Americans are so bad at geography.

Watch the mash-up.
