Presidential candidate John McCain has endorsed Barack Obama in what many are calling an ill-fated strategy in his quest for the White House.
"I think the American people will respond to my sincerity," said McCain, "and will approve of my willingness to sacrifice for their own good. And then, well, we'll see. Shit, I ain't got much hope otherwise."
Karl Rove has publicly denounced the decision and has resigned as McCain's chief strategist.
"That is the dumbassest thing I've ever heard of," said Rove from his castle in Transylvania.
The decision came after a last-ditch booze-fueled war-room style meeting of the McCain camp's higher-ups at an undisclosed Irish pub in Flagstaff Arizona.
"We just got ripped," said an unidentified member of the McCain staff just after the meeting who then fell on his face and begun to vomit.
"I am convinced that in the confusion that will result, I will increase my chances at polling time," continued McCain, "it's called reverse psychology. It's scientifically been proven scientifically effective."
In a released statement from the White House President Bush has declared McCain's decision a "highly sophisticated political strategy likely to be lost on the general public," but was ultimately unsupportive because, according to the President "it's going to tarnish my own legacy of idiocy. That jackass."
Minutes after the public announcement Barack Obama was overheard on the phone ordering a one-way U haul from Chicago to Washington D.C.
