    McCain would be a good peanut salesman! He can't see how to help the economy and it for sure won't be this summer! Bush won't allow it. He is pandering and telling lies.

    McCain was booed in his own home state? That should send a signal to voters that he is not electable for the presidency.

    im sorry about his arm. He just doesnt look right. I think he should not worry about running for president for mental and physical reasons.

    Does anyone know what's wrong with his arms?

    The arms were broken during his time as a POW....and you would think that painful experience would help him understand the pains of war...

    Well at least Democrats can agree on somethings... and its plain and simple after this fight to seat our democratic candidate, we will come together, and fight for the common goal..

    Real economic stats can be found at not the lies coming out from the current Admin. or the Fed.

    McCain was a war hero who was injured in war. To make fun of his arms seems like a thing Rev Wright would resort to doing.

    Were you also in that hate-filled church for 20 years or are you just a new convert?

    Sen. McCain's arms cannot extend much beyond what is seen in the
    photo. He was repeatedly hanged–during his almost six year ordeal as a POW in Hanoi Hilton– from his wrists while his hands were tied behind his back during his service to our nation.

    I'm scared, really I am. all we seem to know how to do is use witty posts and blogs to attack each other, and no one, I me no one, you your neighboors, those in DC are doing what actually needs to be done about gas prices, education, the war.

    Zombified sheep, slipping into the abyss of facism,

    Bring on McBush, or Madame Hillary we deserve them....
