    Default John McCain may be old, but he's still a threat

    Liberal smarties and sophisticates are having fun mocking John McCain , but assuming he gets the nomination, he will a formidable candidate. He may look like a grumpy old man -- specifically, as my friend Kathleen Geier joked, the grumpy old man who yells at kids to get off his lawn -- or the nutty old uncle who rags on everyone at Thanksgiving before passing out in front of the football game. But that's another way of saying McCain is a familiar, indeed family, character. It does not require an imaginative stretch to get John McCain.

    How many voters know someone like Barack Obama?

    McCain is white, male, patriarchal, a war hero with decades in the Senate. So what if he's old? In politics old can be good ( for men), especially to the older voters -- older white voters -- who dominate the polls. Besides, McCain's not so old that he couldn't get himself a much younger trophy wife, and even if Cindy McCain looks brittle and unhappy and like she hasn't eaten in a decade, she is always there by his side, a visual reminder of his manly prowess. McCain is brash and sly and seemingly unguarded, unlike the famously self-protective Hillary Clinton, and he loves to schmooze with reporters, who adore him and like most of the rest of America, refuse to see how conservative he is. It's like they're saying, Oh go on, Uncle John! you're just saying you love Sam Alito to get me riled up!

    Obama v. McCain could be change/youth/black/exciting/internationalist against experience/maturity/white/steady/superpatriot. Put that way, it could come down to how many white male Democrats, who might vote for Hillary, won't vote for a black man, let alone one whose middle name is Hussein. They won't care about McCain's favors for business --too complicated, and anyway everyone does it -- and they certainly won't care if he had an affair with lovely lobbyist Vicki Iseman, as the New York Times sorta-kinda suggested. They might like him even better for that.

    We've been patting ourselves on the back a lot for having a black and a woman vying for top spot on the ticket of one of the two major parties. November will tell us whether or not we have really come all that far.

    McCain May Be Old, but He's Still a Threat

    Not only is McCain a threat, but I'm convinced he'll be the next president, unless the Democrats can get their act together.

    there are still a lot of retards who don't see through his 'maverick' persona to the Bush anus sucking vulture beneath.

    All it would take is about 5 seconds of research, but that's apparently too much for people these days. They just prefer to placidly absorb whatever cheap facade is thrown at them.

    I believe John McCain is a threat... His temper worries me, it forces me to question his presidential capabilities. Age isn't everything. He could get pissed off because a certain country said something about him or America he didn't like, and he'd probably try to bomb them.

    I don't know about you, but I could seriously see that happening.

    Shit if he's elected I'll drop everything and move to Canada. There's no way I'm living in this country under President InSane.

    The Dems need to call him out on his shit NOW!

    Research...what's that? Don't you know that Americans don't read? A vote for McCain is a vote for Bush's global New Pax Americana that will lead our country into yet another war and our economy in a worse spot than it already is. When I hear people say they would vote for McCain if their democratic nominee is not chosen, it fills me with horror. Educate yourselves people!

    His running mate is going to be very important since he already has one foot in the grave. Anyone want to play "guess who his running mate will be"?

    I'll start: Hillary Clinton (I'm really bad at this game.)

    Apparently he doesn't get along with Huckabee, so I'm guessing Romney
