Black man to McCain: I've taken ass whoopin' for supporting you
At a John McCain rally in Waukesha, Wisconsin, broadcast on CNN Thursday, a black supporter told the embattled senator that he's "taken an ass whoopin'" for supporting him.
"Senator, at the convention, you asked for us to fight, for you," said the supporter. "I doubt there's anyone in this room that's, pardon me, taken the ass whoopin' I have taken for supporting you, and for supporting your policies."
The crowd roared in approval, then sprang to their feet to cheer the man on.
"Sir, I believe that, the next coming debate, it is absolutely vital that you take it to Obama; that you hit him where it hits ... The soft spot," he said, drawing another round of audience applause.
McCain crossed the stage and hugged the man.
"Thank you," said the senator. "Thank you for your courage. I believe your reward will be in heaven, not here on Earth."
