McCain's new press pass

Some Maverick humor:
John McCain’s campaign had a little fun at Barack Obama’s expense tonight, issuing a fake press pass to the McCain traveling press on the bus as we landed at the airport here. The front of the pass identifies the McCain press corps as the “JV Squad” and has the caption “Left Behind to Report in America.” The reverse side features a Frenchman pouring a glass of wine with the same caption en francaise (“Laisse en arriere pour faire un rapport en Amerique”). The fake press pass satirizes the preferential treatment that the McCain campaign suggests the media has given Barack Obama.
That story, BTW, is datelined from Wilkes-Barre, Pa., where John McCain will speak today at a town hall event. I'll be there. It's a three-hour drive. Blogging will be light today.
UPDATE: I'm now live-blogging the event in Wilkes-Barre.
