John McCain is an exceptional candidate. He’s great in interviews, except when he’s not. He’s a Conservative, except when he’s not. He’s a maverick, except when he’s not. . . .
He’s for nuclear energy, except when he’s voting against parking the waste in his back yard. He’s got the foreign policy experience to lead the nation, except when he can’t tell the difference between Sunni and Shia. He’s knowledgable about affairs of state, except when he misses the fact that Czechoslovakia has not been a state in about twenty years. He runs a clean campaign, except when he’s running nothing but negative ads for three weeks in a row.
And best of all, whenever he slips up, the media is there to make an exception for him.
