    Like the rest of the GOP, I do not think John McCain is a representative of what America stands for–ordinary Americans that is. The President of the United States should first and foremost be intelligent. Perhaps because John McCain is not intelligent, that is why he tries to paint Obama's intellectual prowess as being elitist. Nevertheless, any one with any kind of reasoning would see through the veil of McCain and recognize that he is only playing spin politics. His message has little or nothing to do with policy, only attacking Obama in the silliest of ways. Get real! This man has taken our politics so low as to compare a presidential candidate–an intelligent one at that–to dim witted celebrities. I think McCain should have made that comparison of himself to the celebrities because he too is dim witted.

    Show the man some respect you mindless foul mouths! You followers are all looking for free handouts from the Democrats because you were all raised with a silver spoon in your mouths and you want more, more, more. This isn't American Idol or any one of those lame reality shows you watch. This is about America and those who love it and those who want to hand off the flame of freedom to their children. Look at the filth you write and look at the filth in your heads. Get some sense of respect in your lives...please!
