Literary McCain

Lest you think I'm a left-wing liberal--which I am--I'd like to say that when it comes to books, I am truly bipartisan.

I found this article truly interesting. It's by the editor of McCain's books. He gives an idea of the kind of literary mind that this Republican possesses. Click here.

I truly think a President of the United States needs to be a published author. All of the presidents, except for Dubya, had written books. What writing a book can do is show focused attention and important critical thinking skills. Ur, something that our current president had been unable to do.

Oh, and if Ms. Palin still has her eye on the White House, I'd suggest she get out the paper and pen.

I always just assumed Mark Salter totally ghosted McCain's books. Obama, on the other hand, is a true author!

This article is interesting, and it confirms my hunch about McCain: that he's a brave and honorable person who has outdated definitions of bravery and honor (fetishizing individual heroism, especially the war-ish variety, rather than good systems or movements).

This photo reminds me of David Lynch's cartoon strip, The Angriest Dog in the World : "He's so angry he can't move."
