Notice the difference in John McCain's reaction to these questions. When he's in a room full of supporters it's all fun and games, and indeed, a laughing matter. When someone challenges him, he tries to take the high road. It brings to mind the whole controversy about Obama saying people "cling" to guns and religion: a comment that had a lot of truth behind it, but which got him labeled an elitist. What should we call McCain when he talks to a room full of supporters in a candid manner? I could come up with a few words, but I'll leave it to anyone reading this to go ahead and leave their suggestions in the comments portion.
"That's a great question."
"There's people here who don't respect that kind of language."
This is the guy so many Hillary Clinton supporters claim they will vote for instead of Obama? Seems a rather interesting choice to me. Oh, and then there's this>>>. He's practically better for women's issues than having a woman in the White House.
