Has John McCain Met the Commander-in-Chief Threshold? (Matt Stoller, OpenLeft)
http://www.openleft.com/showDiary.do?diaryId=4415

. . . it is rather remarkable that Hillary Clinton believes that John McCain is capable of leading the military. John McCain a crazy angry old man whose record suggests he seeks war pretty much all the time.

Obviously Iraq is the overriding problem we're confronting this election with regards to national security, though an attack on Iran is not quite off the table. But McCain's attitude, that force is correct in pretty much all circumstances, is really quite dangerous. It's dangerous to the military and it's dangerous to the country, as it will create the conditions for all sorts of wars that are completely unnecessary.

John McCain is a very dangerous man, and if what I hear from Senate sources is correct, he's also probably mentally ill. What is wrong with Hillary Clinton that she thinks this man is capable of having his hand near the nuclear football?

1. The Brimley endorsement removed all doubts.

3. God, no, I hadn't seen it. Hi, swag. Long time no see.
You know, how is it that Brimley could have done well in films a good long time and then not be able to find work and have to do Quaker Oats ads and diabetes plugs?

I don't get that.

I guess he was paid for the endorsements and all, but jeez, he actually had done many serious films that challenged him. I can't imagine he felt that the commercials were very challenging.

O well. That's politics.
