John McCain: Asleep At The Spiel!

Posted: Updated:

Senator John McCain finally finds a cure for his insomnia...

Now THAT'S what I want in a candidate seeking an 8-year presidency!

An elderly man fast asleep during the most important ceremonial speech of the political year. Given by the disastrous president who he helped elect twice - and whose dire war policies he wholeheartedly supports. Even in his sleep apparently.

Hats off to MCain for not waiting till he is elected President to be caught asleep! Any old man like Ronald Reagan can fall asleep when you ARE President. But to fall asleep amidst over 600 colleagues, hundreds of spectators, on a state occasion being carried on live TV worldwide - when you haven't even got the job yet - well that shows a certain clazzzzzz.......

Note: If elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2012 - John McCain would celebrate his 80th birthday in the White House in 2016!
