For the last eight years, America has suffered under the burden of having a president with deficiencies of speech and intellect. A John McCain presidency will continue this dishonorable tradition with the added burden of the 75-year old Arizona Senator’s imminent senility. Josh Marshall and the team at Talking Points Memo have compiled a timely video that effectively derails the free ride the Republican candidate has enjoyed in spite of his terrible memory, poor public speaking, and a knowledge of his geopolitical contemporaries that makes Bush look like a master statesman. As Andrew Sullivan writes of the video on his blog at The Atlantic, “It does to McCain on the issue of age what McCain did to Obama on the question of celebrity and alleged elitism.”
