McC's Corner: Let's face it folks, I'm hurting

God I don't want to go to that debate tonight.

Greetings, America. John here. It's 6 a.m. Cindy's out in the back packaging up another adopted baby gorilla that arrived dead, yet again, and I've just taken my pills. You'd think after forty years I'd be used to having over half my body immolated by napalm. But you never get past it, America. I'm just happy you've chosen me for my principles as a leader and not out of pity for my injuries. Nor have you exploited me. Roger Simon of Politico said on MSNBC last night that "John McCain loves to shoot craps" and he is correct, I do love to shoot shit.

And that's our economy right now.

America's economy is like this, America. Exactly as I've just described it. God I don't want to go to that debate tonight.

Reminds me of the day in Vietnam I lost both my arms to a boobie trap. Hooks just yanked the suckers right off. Pop went the weasels. Can't we instead focus on this? Once again, America, I thank you for never making any criticism of me as a candidate due to these shortcomings. "John, how are you going to go into politics? You're missing every limb, your spine is chopped to pieces by shrapnel, and your face is covered in burns?" I remember my first wife asking me this, as she left me with our kids, citing my injuries as her only reason for abandonment. I vowed then to enter [...]
