List of things we aren't allowed to say about McCain-
1. Having been a POW doesn't mean you would make a good Commander in Chief.

2. His cancer history makes me nervous. Why don't they ever show the left side of his face?

3. He's not just 71. He's an OLD 71.

4. Everyone knows he's got an awful temper that he can't control.

5. He hates women. He says terrible things to and about women.

6. His idea of family values is leaving the woman who was faithful to you when you were a POW for a rich young blonde.

5. Health, temperament and discrimination are all important character issues
when selecting the leader of the nation.
Health not so much a character issue but he does need to be healthy enough to execute the duties of the office.
The others are character issues and I for one have had enough with the bullshit type of character we have had to put up with for 8 years.

I will keep this as issues and I will discuss them.

6. that temper - his temper is so bad that he has actually gotten physical with a few folks.

here's the other POW one - getting the Steelers and the Packers mixed up. It's a perfectly understandable mistake, yo. So is the entire story a LIE or is it senility?

Neither choice is a good one.

8. And some of them were Senators.
Its unthinkable that we have someone who throws a punch at other legislators in the Senate, much less in the White House.

16. That his war experiences may have left him mentally incompetent to be POTUS.
PTSD is a sad reality.

17. Because he was physically and mentally tortured
for 6 years, is the main reason he should NOT be considered for the highest office in the land.

22. His resume is more full of failure that The bush boys.....
He could not have gotten in the Naval Academy with his Diddy's help. Would have been thrown out if not for Diddy. Certainly would not have gotten in flight school with such a horrible Naval Academy record and would have been thrown out of The Navy well before he crashed the 4th or 5th plane.

He's stupid and a lifetime failure who got everything handed to him due to family and marrying the drugged out woman who inherited $100 million.

19. He has a sick and twisted sense of humor
joking about killing Iranians with cigarettes or how much women like to be raped.
