6. Generally, his supporters find only two arguments "in favor" of McCain
1. He's anti-change.
2. He's not black.

Beyond those two issues (concealed, though they may be, in less stark framing), I've never heard any argument put forth in support of McCain. And even those two issues are abhorrent to anyone with any sense of how the world works.

At a local county fair last night, I saw a registration station for good ol' McCain, along with a lot of idiots wearing Vote McCain t-shirts.
