Republican presidential candidate John Sidney McCain III has a simple plan for voters anxious about jobs sent to China.
"Ebay that stuff you have in the closet," said McCain today, "Most Americans have so much useless junk, that we could live for years just selling it."
Scientists marveled at the brilliance of McCain's logic. "Let's say you sell me a Hummel Figurine for $50", said Fox News economist Tony Snow." And I sell you my collection of old beer bottles, also for $50. Now we both have $50, and can buy nearly a tank of gas!"
Democrats were taken by surprise at the depth of McCain's knowledge of economics. "Just last month," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. "McCain said he didn't know anything about the economy, but that he'd read a book. Now he knows more than all those economists who say his theory is hooey. I guess we might as well give up!"
