Mad Dotard Repeatedly Invokes "Joe the Plumber," Mocks Women's Lives

In tonight's debate, John McCain broke out a new, more sophisticated sentence structure:

Joe-the-plumber verb earmarks, independent clause about William Ayers.
It was mindless GOP talking points sprinkled liberally into the sorts of sprawling, confused, quite possibly fabricated anecdotes for which men of McCain's advanced age are notorious.

Oh, and McCain mocked the idea of decriminalizing abortion to preserve the life or health of the pregnant woman. Here's McCain:
Just again, the example of the eloquence of Sen. Obama. He's [for?] health for the mother. You know, that's been stretched by the pro-abortion movement in America to mean almost anything. That's the extreme pro-abortion position, quote, "health."
Health schmealth! Even scare quotes are wasted upon this "health"! Joe the plumber spits on "health"!

One last confusion from McCain:
I don't care about an old washed-up terrorist [Ayers]. But as Sen. Clinton said in her debates with you, we need to know the full extent of that relationship.
He doesn't care about it and yet "we need to know" about it. Neat! Does he not realize that "I" is subsumed in "we"? So he doesn't care about something he himself needs and all the rest of us need? Country first!
