McCain video and speech

Where does the footage of McCain looking sexy on the hospital bed come from? Does he get tired of hearing the story, seeing the images? Did he think, at the time, this will really come in handy later at the RNC?

That funny wrinkle on his mom’s upper lip.

Why do we have to get old? McCain who now looks like such a dour jowly potato was really startlingly fine, back in the day, a little like Warren Beatty, who could play him in a bioipic but is too politically sensible.

“The stars are aligned; change will come.” Clear fatalism. “When you’ve lived in a box, the world becomes clear.”

How people say “cunt” every time they say “country.”

He enters with his arms slightly out to the sides, and waddles, as if he’s wearing a NYPD belt. He doesn’t walk with ease. His voice is rather thin and high.The hooligans chant the country name over and over. He has said thank you a couple dozen times. Slide in back of one of his many houses?

They won’t let him talk.

Wait, whoa, there was just a cut to a guy holding a big sign reading “McCain votes against vets.” What? Did anyone else catch that? Another cut to a guy in black t-shirt reading “2008 Vets against the war” — same guy? People distracted, looking over towards him?

McCain’s mom 96 years old.

I’m bored with this now.

A moment of graciousness to Obama. I hope he means it. Slide of cornfields.

Oh good, another protester. I didn’t see her sign. She appears to be rending her garment. Now another protester! I love it! My heros! “Please don’t be distracted by the ground noise and the static, HEH HEH HEH.” says McCain. He’s not flapped.

I’d like to see a sound wave analysis of McCain’s voice as compared to Obama’s. There’s Bristol in black again, looking like a kitty. Luscious curve of Sarah’s cheekbone, the artichoke of her coiffure, the gleaming veneers of her teeth.

He sounds a little like he’s on barbituates, too. Oh gawd…do I have to keep watching this.

Just noticed he opted to wear a tie almost the same color as his skin. Why would anyone want to do that? He just said Indian instead of Native American.

I can’t watch this anymore. Just can’t. Besides, Gary wants to sleep.

  1. Nada-sweets, I’m glad you watched it so I didn’t have to. I am hiding in the other room as my babe snoozes and my husband watches the “stand with me and fight speech”.I miss you lots. Will you come to SF one of these days? There is a cherubic babe here who’d like to meet you and call you Auntie (once his vocabulary expands beyond “wooo” and “ack!”).

  2. Washington Post story on CM’s addiction.You’re probably right. Years ago i was reading GHW Bush’s remarks (after the written speeches) and press conference transcripts in the 1980s/90s, it seemed to me that he couldn’t utter a grammatical sentence. Always interrupted himself mid-thought. That was when i realized that the world’s leaders are likely propped up by serious drugs to be able to maintain the pace of their schedules and pressure of their duties. Not to say many of us don’t deal with the very same situation. Or that we speak all that grammatically.But at the same time, the medical science of psycho-active drugs is pretty much in the “alchemical” stage at this point, i.e. try X, change the dosage, doesn’t work? well, then let’s try Y. Oh, you have that side effect, well, let’s try Z, i know i have some samples around here somewhere … So don’t we <>deserve to know<> what the President might be on, and whether those drugs have been properly vetted?
