Is McCain Senile Or Just A Big Liar ?

It has to be one or the other. Either John McCain is the world's biggest liar, or he has finally slipped from the real world and finally embraced his senility. Note this ridiculous statement he made on ABC's "This Week" program. He was talking about Willard Mitt Romney's selection of a running mate for the presidential campaign and said the "primary, absolute, most important aspect is if something happened to him, would that person be well qualified to take that place?"

He then went on to say, "I happen to believe that was the. . .primary factor on my decision in 2008." How could he say such an ignorant thing? Didn't he pick Sarah Palin -- a woman who couldn't even finish one term as governor of one of the least-populated states, a woman who couldn't name a single newspaper or magazine that she reads, a woman who thought that Africa was a country instead of a continent, a woman who thought Paul Revere "warned the British" on his midnight ride?

I don't think there is a single thinking person in the United States that thinks Sarah Palin was (or even is now) qualified to be president. Even McCain's own aides admit this now, and were horrified that they could have been responsible for putting her a heartbeat from the presidency.

I find it hard to believe McCain could keep a straight face while telling that big a lie. That's why I'm thinking it must be senility. I was going to suggest it may be time for him to retire, But I'm afraid that Arizona would just replace him with a teabagger -- and a person with no brain is just as bad as one with a dysfunctional brain.
