Okay, this one's just for fun. You know, John McCain's been having a rough few days on the image and message front. Had to cancel the visit to New Orleans and the Gulf Oil rig because of the recent oil spill. And here he is doing a media availability in front of a big sign that says 'Fudge Haus' which he improbably refers to as the 'Sausage Haus' ...
(Ed.note: A rapid fire TPM investigation revealed that while McCain and Sen. Lindsay Graham were standing in front of "Schmidt's Fudge Haus" there is a nearby "Sausage Haus". So possibly he and Graham went to 'Sausage Haus' before stopping over for some post sausage fudge.)
Late Update: Occasionally one part of TPM doesn't know what the other is doing. As it turns out, at noon today Greg Sargent reported at Election Central that McCain did very much patronize the Sausage Haus. Greg even spoke directly to Farah Hice, hostess at the Haus to confirm McCain's meal. So McCain must have first eaten at the Sausage Haus before going over to stand in front of the Fudge Haus sign to do his media availability.
