McCain Embarrasses Himself Again

There was a time when I had a great deal of respect for John McCain. I still respect his integrity and courage -- the man is a genuine hero -- but he is ill suited for a position of political leadership and is downright ridiculous in the role of senior statesman. His appearance on the Leno show [here], in which he pointedly dissed Governor Palin, is just the latest in a long series of performances in which his inadequacies are fully on display. He's becoming an embarrassment, but then he's not as ridiculous as the guy we wound up electing.
