or however old high school juniors are these days.

NPR: The Awkward Moment at McCain's High School Speech:
"I think judging by the amount of press representatives here and also by the integration of your previous political endorsements in your earlier personal narrative, we can see that this isn't completely absent - er, political motivation isn't completely absent yet we were told that this isn't a political event. So what exactly is your purpose in being here, not that I don't appreciate the opportunity but I'd just like some clarification."

i'd like to see this continue, though. for the luvva pete, please. mccain is a politician. pure and simple. anytime some guy that's been in the game this long gets a reputation for being outside the game... that's just his game piece. pure and simple. his bullshit needs cutting. this is how bush got elected. twice. "oh hai i am regular joe would you like to have a beer with me? i'm outside the beltway i'm outside the normal i'm not politics as usual i'm a uniter not a divider!" ha. fuuuuuuck that. most of us saw it comin', and we get to say 'i toldja so' but he was most certainly part of the regular game. he had the top political insider runnin' his show the whole time, tellin' you all how to think about him. he's from a political dynasty family. he was, and is, and ever shall be, the same ol' same ol'. omg but he goes to church! yeah. they all do. just another gimmick.

unfortunately, this is going to happen to obama eventually. the nice thing is, right now, he is "something different". when he gets to mccain's age? he'll be the same ol' same ol'.

but hey. that's a long way off, eh?

man, mccain's old...

Generic Democrat B wishes HE never went to church. lolol.

Obama's campaign is crawling with lobbyists though he said it wouldn't be (not that I care about it one way or another, but he's a hypocrite just like the rest).

well shit, he's a politician. let there be no misunderstanding that there is a certain absolute baseline from which everything is measured, here. a baseline that is at a different, lower level than the general populace.

on top of the ethical issues... there's the politics of it. i mean, the general electorate is so stupid that it needs to be told bullshit to be kept happy. like US senators will "do things" for their state. guess what? they shouldn't. and when they do? it's called "pork". and EVERYONE bitches about it...

but when they don't say they'll do it? the electorate gets mad at them and elects someone else.

the very nature of politics makes a politician a bullshitter and hypocrite to some extent. it's the ones that go above and beyond that you have to keep an eye on (ok, well, more eyes on).

also i have no idea wtf the church comment is all about...
