Once this makes the rounds at the networks, McCain's senility will be solidified in voter's minds.
If so, it is the direct result of the kind of the stage managed and controlled campaigns and "debates" in which so little unfiltered information about who the candidate really is and what they really stand for ever comes out that we, the poor, starved information consumers, stumble through a Potemkin village of false fronts and vague banalities desperately searching for one true crumb of info.

Ergo . . .

McCain makes a slip and we're on it like a bum on baloney.

But it's just sound and fury, signifying nothing . . . or little.

Well, he did say "wise and beautiful woman" when he was talking about "credit cards".

Shame on you, opportunistic democrats, for jumping on this slip.

McCain's mind is in part in the military and his brutal past, and that much is obvious to anyone who sees, and understandable, but jumping on such trivialities is cheapening the entire discussion and keeping the politicians hiding in their safe zones cowering from outcries instead of holding meaningful intelligent discussions as if with adults.

This you accuse the others of, and rightly so, so you should not do.

Sure, it sucks and we feel bad for him, you don't get to be POTUS on pity though and Im not sure why you want a guy elected that has this many emotional issues. If he had that many issues with his past that he can't function normally and at a level required of a POTUS than he should not be running, period.

Send that message to McCain's running mate as well...

You may think McCain is senile, but remember: All blacks are senile and crazy, in their wide-eyed, frothing mouth hatred of all things White and Good.

And Obama is black.

I didn't mean that I wanted him elected, I meant that you shouldn't cheapen the discussion by trying to make grandiose, childish claims on nothing more than a slip of tongue.

Attack him on being too military-minded? Sure, go ahead and demonstrate the guts to do that. There is probably a lot more substantive material for that.

But this is a cheap shot, and you should know better. If you don't, then sorry, maybe I'm asking too much of you.

You may laugh at my sarcastic comment, but the underlying principle is one of the major reasons people won't vote for Obama:

He is black, and blacks have a racist ax to grind against all whites. Giving a black the presidency would send the wrong message and Obama would punish whites. Also, Michelle Obama and her racial divisiveness are a perhaps stronger argument. It seems that both candidates have problems with women close to them.

Way too complex. His unconscious was simply expressing what it is to be a prisoner of Republican delusions, prisoners of a dead end past.

Its not attacking him on being too military-minded, its question whether someone who has flashbacks as he does in relatively stress free environments, how such a person will react when having to face down Islam, Russia, China, or even a bunch of bankers. Sorry he was taking prisoner and tortured, but these are valid questions and should not be dismissed because you feel sorry for the guy.

White people have the white mans burden as well where we would sacrifice our lives in order for minorities to overcome there burdens, because of this white people will vote for Obama


:roll: isn't it funny how circular racist arguments can become

Hey campaigning is real stressful for a guy of his advanced age, almost as stressful as being President.
