We have already had one President who lost his memory, another who had been a heavy user. We can not let this man near the button. As some comic said, he gets so excited he drools when he sees a clown's nose. This is truly pathetic - old, tired, no teleprompter. If, after three major debates with Obama, the race is still close and he somehow wins, the system is really rigged for sure and we really are a Banana Republic.
Top diary at DailyKos right now is McCain Lies About His Civil Rights Records, in which his "recovery" from forgetting the question is shown (prompting by the reporter) and he goes on to lie about his civil rights record. In actuality, he voted against creating MLK Day and now says he's changed, but was against it as late as 1987. In 1990, his was the deciding vote that allowed Bush Bush I's VETO of the 1990 Civil Rights Act. He has voted against education bills from elementary to advanced (see diary for detailed information) and is going around lying to voters about that too. Jonathan Alter at Newsweek has him pegged.
