    You people have been electing him as your Senator for years. What's he done that's changed your minds about him? Run for President? How dare he!

    Oh poor litthle thing I feel for you. People these days has no respect for the seniors. There was a time when we were honoring the olders but now it's different. Perhaps it will be better for you to retire from politics and start playing with your grand children.

    What would the 360 caption be for this picture? How about:

    John McCain tries to lure in uncertain Republicans and Independants with the old 'peanut and a hug' trick...

    (Get it? Republicans. Elephants. Nevermind...)

    On a serious note, we all need a break from the campagine trail. If Hillary looses both states, she needs to drop out and give us all a break from this.

    For a minute there, I thought Sen. McCain was actually tossing peanuts to the crowd. How fitting, since that's what he has in mind for the American people if he's elected.

    Those peanuts reflect McCane's knowledge of economics.

    By the way, Moorad looks like he wishes McCane was watching the game on TV a million miles away from him.
