The first question at the town hall meeting of the Republican presidential candidate Thursday concerned Favre. The three-time MVP wants to come out of retirement but might not play for the Green Bay Packers. The questioner said McCain would carry Wisconsin in the election if he could resolve this standoff.
``There's a lot of controversies that I have eagerly leapt into in my time,'' McCain said and laughed. ``I'm not so dumb that I'm going to jump into that one.''
The Arizona senator tried to get Favre-loving cheeseheads in the crowd to keep the matter in perspective.
``We all agree on that Brett Favre has provided America and the state of Wisconsin with some of its greatest memories,'' he said. ``And I hope we keep that all in mind as we go forward.''
