Ok. McCain uses gas but doesn’t know the price of a gallon of gas. Is it relevant? I would think so but then again, in a leadership position, it is not so much what you know as much as what your advisers can tell you.
WISCKOL: When was the last time you pumped your own gas and how much did it cost? â€¨
McCAIN: Oh, I don’t remember. Now there’s Secret Service protection. But I’ve done it for many, many years. I don’t recall and frankly, I don’t see how it matters. I’ve had hundreds and hundreds of town hall meetings, many as short a time ago as yesterday. I communicate with the people and they communicate with me very effectively.
I had the unique pleasure of being called "a flaming liberal" by a relative a couple of weeks ago. I have never really applied a label to my political beliefs so it actually took me a second to process; that is until he said, "I’d vote for W a third term!" Who has those flaming liberal t-shirts? I’ll wear one.
