So Sen. McCain thinks Amb. Rice is "not very bright?"

I'd wager she knows how many houses she owns.



Not very bright, eh, Senator?

2. And I can't recall when Rice chose a complete buffoon to be a heartbeat away from the presidency

3. Bold Words, Sir, from a Man With a D- Grade Average

Graduated fifth from the bottom of his class at Annapolis, 891 out of 895, if recollection serves on the numbers.

5. Well there's more to smarts than that fancy book learnin

For example, you need to know exactly when to call your father, the Admiral, to get you out of a jam and help you slide by. That's a true measure of intelligence.

4. McCain was only a Pilot cause of Dad & Gramdpa.......

 

........and he crashed several expensive aircraft before he was shot down & captured.


McCain was commissioned an ensign. He spent two years as a naval aviator in training, first at Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida through September 1959, and then at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi in Texas, during which time he was promoted to lieutenant, junior grade. He earned a reputation as a party man, as he drove a Corvette, dated an exotic dancer named "Marie the Flame of Florida", spent all his free time on the beach or in a Bachelor Officer Quarters room turned bar and friendly gambling den, and, as he later said, "generally misused my good health and youth". He began as a sub-par flier: he had limited patience for studying aviation manuals, and spent study time reading history books instead. He was not assigned to the elite units flying fighter aircraft, and instead became a pilot of attack aircraft. During a March 1960 practice run in Texas, he lost track of his altitude and speed, and his single-seat, single-pistoned-engine AD-6 Skyraider crashed into Corpus Christi Bay and sank to the bottom.

7. Maybe you're not very bright...

Of course these cretins want to portray her as an incompetent. They want her judged so in the court of public opinion. They want Kerry out of the Senate. As desperate and despicable as their actions may be, count on them to *always* have a method to their madness.

9. It is a well known fact that John McCain is not very bright

Look at his Annapolis records. For starters.
