Awful for anyone to be tortured,

Kept in pain by scorcherers;

Worse, perhaps, when the victim

Sides with the torturers

No terrorist attacks on US soil since 9/11? Anthrax in the mail? Did I imagine that?

Re: Belfast unemployment; McCain just stated it came down from 90% to 10% with the end of the Troubles.

In fact-checking, at it's height unemployment was approx. 35% (catholic males vs. 15% Protestant males) and now is around 3.5% (one of the lowest in Europe).

One who uses such obvioulsy incorrect "facts" shouldn't be running for President.

What a silly, mean-spirited comment above.

Let's focus on substance, not your American Idiot.I mean Idol like comments about various candidates facial appearances...

I'm sure there are similar criticisms of Hillary and Obama's goofy looks too.

If we wanted a Brtiney Spears like commentary we'd listen to MSM & read their comment pages.

I've been watching more of Mr. McCain's speeches lately and I noticed that he has a loathesome habit. Every time he says something he thinks is particularly clever, he gives this smug smile and bats his eyes quickly over and over again giving him the distinct impression not of being a a straight-talking war hero but instead of being a snotty 12-year-old girl.
