  •  McCain should just STFU... (4+ / 0-)

    ...because he has no room to talk.

    I happen to live right across the street from one of John McCain's many homes (I know, I know.  Doesn't everyone?)  Seriously, I live across the street from the building he lives in when he's working in Washington.  One day during the 2008 campaign I happened to step out on to my balcony to see a a big motorcade forming up, complete with Virginia State Police cruisers, a media van and what looked to me like a couple of standard, government-issue black SUV's.

    I checked candidate McCain's schedule for that day and it turns out that he was on his way to his national campaign headquarters, which was, quite literally, halfway around the block from his apartment.

    It would have been faster, easier and cheaper for him to just walk there.

    I wonder how much it cost taxpayers for him to have those State Troopers, his Secret Service detail, etc. for that trip halfway around the block?
