I’m in England at the moment, where I’m getting an, um, interesting perspective on the American presidential campaigning. So just to be perverse, all this week I’m highlighting YouTube video of Republican candidate John McCain, for two reasons. 1) He’s a nut, and as many people as possible need to know that before they go to the polls on November 4. And 2) The possibility that McCain could potentially be derailed as a candidate through his own words — as propagated on YouTube — is a banner moment for the Internet. Theoretically, this kind of material has always been available before… if the mainstream corporate media deigned to air it. Today, we can see it for ourselves… as long as the word about it gets out.
The man is unstable and clearly lacks any sense of basic judgment. I have to wonder whether there’s, like, actually something misfiring in his head, like how people with frontal lobe injuries can’t control their behavior. I don’t say this to be mean or facetious: I really worry about this.
