She is.
That doesn't make her unfit to lead a country.

Re: McCain's YouTube Problem

McCain is a semi-black man? I thought that was just his love child....

McCain gets credit for being a "straight talk" kind of guy, and I used to like him, but now it seems he's willing to say anything to get elected president.

The mainstream media depict him as always being a critic of the Iraq War. Nothing could be further from the truth.

On the easiness of the war...

"I believe that we can win an overwhelming victory in a very short period of time." -- John McCain (9/29/02, CNN)

“But I believe, Katie, that the Iraqi people will greet us as liberators.” [NBC, 3/20/03]

“It’s clear that the end is very much in sight.” [ABC, 4/9/03]

“There’s not a history of clashes that are violent between Sunnis and Shiahs. So I think they can probably get along.” [MSNBC, 4/23/03]

[Ah, yes, there's that expertise... ]

"The American people ... were led to believe that this would be some kind of a day at the beach which many of us, uh, fully understood from the very beginning would be a very, very difficult undertaking."--McCain (8/22/06,CNN)

"I knew it was probably going to be long and hard and tough. And those that voted for it and thought that somehow it was going to be some kind of an easy task, then I'm sorry they were mistaken. Maybe they didn't know what they were voting for." -- McCain (1/4/07, MSNBC)

And, then, of course, there was his talk about the safety of Iraq.

McCain: “General Petraeus goes out there almost every day in an unarmed humvee.” He told radio host Bill Bennett that there “are neighborhoods in Baghdad where you and I could walk through those neighborhoods, today.”

John Roberts: "I checked with General Petraeus’s people overnight and they said he never goes out in anything less than an up-armored humvee. ...Gen. Barry McCaffrey said no Iraqi government official, coalition soldier, diplomat reporter could walk the streets of Baghdad without heavily armed protection.”

McCain: “Well, I’m not saying they could go without protection. The President goes around America with protection. So, certainly I didn’t say that.”

Does he not know key differences in the Middle East?
At least four times, McCain has mistakenly said that Iran was aiding the Sunni-based al-Qaeda in Iraq, not the Shiite militants. Joe Lieberman corrected him once on live television. Does he not know the difference between Sunnis and Shiites? Is he just getting old?

I'm beginning to think he's just losing it. I mean, good lord, just look at this exchange about HIV prevention:

Q: “What about grants for sex education in the United States? Should they include instructions about using contraceptives? Or should it be Bush’s policy, which is just abstinence?”

Mr. McCain: (Long pause) “Ahhh. I think I support the president’s policy.”

Q: “So no contraception, no counseling on contraception. Just abstinence. Do you think contraceptives help stop the spread of HIV?”

Mr. McCain: (Long pause) “You’ve stumped me.”

Q: “I mean, I think you’d probably agree it probably does help stop it?”

Mr. McCain: (Laughs) “Are we on the Straight Talk express? I’m not informed enough on it. Let me find out. You know, I’m sure I’ve taken a position on it on the past. I have to find out what my position was. Brian, would you find out what my position is on contraception – I’m sure I’m opposed to government spending on it, I’m sure I support the president’s policies on it.”

Q: “But you would agree that condoms do stop the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Would you say: ‘No, we’re not going to distribute them,’ knowing that?”

Mr. McCain: (Twelve-second pause) “Get me Coburn’s thing, ask Weaver to get me Coburn’s paper that he just gave me in the last couple of days. I’ve never gotten into these issues before.”

WTF?
