    John McCain, the son of an Admiral, finished in the bottom 1% of his class at the academy. He also lost all 5 of the Naval aircraft assigned to him.

    First time he accidentally plunged into the Corpus Christi Bay while practicing landings. McCain lost another plane two years later while he was deployed in the Mediterranean. Flying too low over the Iberian Peninsula, he took out some power lines. McCain lost number three in 1965 when he was returning from flying a Navy trainer solo to Philadelphia for an Army-Navy football game.

    If he hadn't been the son of an Admiral, you have to wonder if McCain would have even been allowed behind the controls of an aircraft. Of course, without daddy, he probably would have never gained entrance to the academy. Could it be possible that this guy is even less intelligent that George Bush?

    OMG, I hope not. If so, we have a real hobsen's choce in November.

    Are we electing the John McCain, 20 something party boy, or the more mature version? I'm hoping that it is the latter, as the Democrats haven't been able to give us much in the way of an alternative.

    as an obama supporter... i frankly don't care about this. let's have people vote based on the ideas they think are best for the country, not who crashed a plane at 22 or who smoked pot at 17 or anything else that doesn't matter.
