    Old John is an interesting person. In his autobiography, he tells that as a child he would explode in rage for the least important reason. He would hold his breath until he passed out to get his way.

    Maybe he should try that on national TV. Might get the vote of the United Breath Holders.

    John, seems to me, to be another one of those born to privlege who never gets over the fact that his daddy being important doesn't really make him important.

    I also wondered about those who were POWs but never gave in like he did. Why aren't they in politics?

    Maybe they learned a higher meaning for their life.

    I don't think Rolling Stone likes John McCain very much. I'm even thinking that one might be a bit overstated. But McCain 2K plus 8 definitely bears no relationship to McCain 2K.

    I don't want to get all Freudian here but both McCain and Bush were number three. It seems both had daddy issues. I get the feeling McCain has managed to hide his issues until now. Now, after waiting so long he can see the glittering prize receding. I think he's simply losing it and the real John McCain is standing up.

    I think Bush's "daddy issues" have always been pretty apparent. I have no doubt that McCain feels a certain sense of entitlement as well as frustration. It isn't easy being the child of a person you can't surpass. In Bush's case, that was exacerbated by him being so much less capable than Jeb. I don't know how McCain stacks up against his siblings.

    I think my point is that there's clearly a lot wrong with McCain, but everyone brings their own particular psychology to the presidency. Obama has his personal demons, too. The question is will those personal demons help him do a better job or impede him? They clearly impeded Bush. I don't know if they would have impeded McCain. He seems to have been capable at the tasks he's taken on, regardless of what he's become from a moral perspective. I think Obama's demons have driven him and made him better. I know people like that and they excel at everything they do.

    Good find. It is a shame the left doesn't have an echo chamber similar to the right, this should be everywhere.
