    The silly woman probably didn't realise that he was a POW maverick.

    We want this guy's finger on the big red button. It'd be great.

    They post the more adorable stories on JohnMcCain.com:

    Um... DICK? For someone living in the shadow of his family, you'd think he wouldn't act like such a spoiled brat so often in those days.

    It's becoming more obvious, McCain is a condescending jerk.

    Remember the questioner from the town hall that McCain told "you probably don't know who Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are."

    I posted in "The Debate" thread that that comment particularly annoyed me; that it's come back to bite him on the arse is fantastic!

    He may be able to control his temper now, but grumpy and erratic old men tend to get grumpier and more erratic by the day. My grandfather was fit as a fiddle at 72, a rambling maniac at 73 and a vegetable at 74. Alzheimer's doesn't kick in overnight, it creeps in slowly and for the first couple of months you're not sure what's going on. There would be transitional period where McCain's advisors are scratching their heads and wondering if they should consult medical assistance or not. I wouldn't want him to be anywhere near a button during that time, unless the button is labeled "Nurse".

    I also don't think his medical problems have been fully disclosed... that lump he has on the side of his face has nothing to do with skin cancer, that's a tumor in the parotid or the submandibular gland... could be a pleomorphic adenoma or a warthin's, could be something worse...

    But why take risks when there's another perfectly healthy candidate in his 40's?
