The most baffling statement in tonight's debate came from John McCain. In discussing how he would prioritize health care, energy and entitlement reform, McCain said in part:
"We can work on nuclear power plants. Build a whole bunch of them, create millions of new jobs. We have to have all of the above, alternative fuels, wind, tide, solar, natural gas, clean coal technology. All of these things we can do as Americans and we can take on this mission and we can overcome it.
My friends, some of this $700 billion ends up in the hands of terrorist organizations.
As far as health care is concerned, obviously, everyone is struggling to make sure that they can afford their premiums and that they can have affordable and available health care. That's the next issue."
I don't know about you, but I found that single paragraph sentence about terrorist organizations a bit confusing. Does this mean that John McCain has already picked out the terrorist organizations we're giving the money to or does Congress have to vote on it?
