    Came across this...it makes sense to me, an Alzheimer's test would finally put to rest, one way or another, the nagging questions about McCain's fitness to govern. I would think both he and the Pubs would welcome it, yet it appears they are avoiding such a test. My only question is...what are they afraid of?

    Guess Obama owes the country an AIDS test since black people get AIDS more often. What is he afraid of?

    Do you see how ridiculous both claims are?

    Age as it relates to mental condition is a very relevant question. For instance John McSame would be disqualified for flying a commercial airliner just because of his age.

    There are many other examples but unfortunately being leader of the free world with all the stress and critical decision making that needs to be made on a daily basis isn't one of them.

    I respect the elderly myself... but as my brother the Republican and a executive himself grudgingly said when he told me he was sitting this election out.

    well being black is not a issue to me
    but his age is something to keep in mind I think

    HIV test for Obama would be helpful for "other" reasons also.

    I say McCain should take your test right after Obama takes his

    As if McCain should respond to the worst garbage level defamation of the wingnut left. That particular glob of your continuous sewage flow of defamation has not the slightest shred of fact to support it.

    By the way - WHAT COUNTRY ARE YOU FROM? WHO ARE YOU?

    I was pointing out the ridiculous nature of both questions.

    I think that people want to jump all over McCain when he misspeaks or forgets something and call it memory loss, but when Obama does it, it is something else. I do not see the link between McCain and alzheimers, and think that anyone who is capable of doing what he is doing right now clearly does not have alzheimers.
