Foghorn Leghorn for President

A few days ago saw Democratic presedential hopefuls talking like Yosemite Sam in early attempts to sway voters.

Now we see GOP candidates aren't above the same tactic.

Republican presidential hopeful John McCain taunted rival Mitt Romney on immigration Monday, saying the former Massachusetts governor should "get out his small-varmint gun and drive those Guatemalans off his lawn."

Romney's backtrack on an April comment that he'd "been a hunter pretty much all my life" -- he later said he had shot "varmints," such as rabbits, as a child; and a 2006 report in The Boston Globe that a landscaping firm Romney hired to maintain his home for years had hired illegal immigrants.

Note to John McCain: the appropriate response to the rackin-frackin, rootinest-tootinest candidate north, south, east, aaaaand west of the Pecos is 'You're desthpicable'
