How McCain Should Respond to Obama Speech – Henry “Mack Truck” Harvey

The Mack Truck discusses the final night of the Democratic National Convention, and what John McCain’s response should be to Barack Obama’s speech. A transcript of the excerpt follows the jump.

HENRY: Yes, this is The Henry “Mack Truck” Harvey Show. Welcome aboard.

Big speech last night by Barack Obama.

Final night of the Democrappic National Convention.

First caller is Dale from Ventura, California. Dale, you’re on with The Mack Truck.

CALLER: Yeah, I just–I’m wondering how you think McCain should respond to such a big speech. I mean, how does he respond?

HENRY: I’ll tell you how he responds. He says… My fellow Americans, I have a flesh-eating virus, and I have three days to live.

In fact, much of my flesh is already gone, or at least it’s not where it used to be.

I ask for your support in this great time of need, and I ask you to carry on my legacy by voting for me in November.

And the money would just come pouring in, and the support would come pouring in, and people would be crying. It would be unbelievable.

CALLER: Why would people vote for someone who’s going to be dead in November?

HENRY: Because he won’t be dead. “Oh, miraculously, we have discovered a cure for this particular type of flesh-eating virus. A mixture of seaweed, rice, and raw fish–

CALLER: That’s sushi.

HENRY: A mixture of seaweed and Robitussin has miraculously reversed the effects of this horrible virus.

It doesn’t taste good, but boy does it do a job on that flesh-eating viruses.

And John McCain now has his flesh back.

And it’s a younger, more vigorous flesh because it’s a new flesh.

Aren’t you glad you didn’t stop supporting him?

And, and you say the seaweed that was found was found by drilling offshore. So it’s a win-win.
