    If he wants to stay in good health it would be wise NOT to go to Iraq.
    And please stay far from John.

    I am surprised, given all the unsanitary brown stuff that has been dumped on him lately. And yet he still comes out smelling like a rose!

  14. i am not dump

    this guy is excellent on everything. John Mccain is old to be president. he is to old to remember or to make a decision. when mccain is speaking, you can see him trembling because of his age.

    Great!

    McCain = 1200+ pages of health records just from 2000-2008, is on 8+ drugs and is considered in "excellent" health as well... rofl

    "if" he wins, I hope he picks a good VP!

    Given Obama's missteps in recent days, he should have a mental checkup as well.
