Clint Curtis is there?
Charles Hunter, an environmentalist delegate from New Hampshire and a veteran of Republican conventions going back to the 1980 coronation of Ronald Reagan at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena, can't sleep at all.
"This is my last convention," he tells me, lighting a cigarette.
"I'm a real McCain guy. I served. But I liked the old McCain -- when he was a true hero, before he signed on with the yahoos. I actually believe in 'country first.'"
"Not a fan of Palin?"
"If I were McCain I'd probably bring her onto my ticket, too. That's exactly the problem. I guess I tricked myself into thinking that McCain, even after he watered himself down for the election, could somehow restore sanity. The Democrats tried to paint him as a twin of Bush. Not true. But Palin ... she does remind me of Bush. McCain has made a devil's pact and sealed this party's fate."
Even though he's older, he smokes his cigarette like a young man, with earnest haste, before he flicks it off into the dark.
"That's it," he said, "we're through. Even if we win, we've lost.

The Americans should have come up with the IQ law on voting.
if your IQ isn't above the standard level, you don't have the right to vote.
It's not that Americans are stupid - just really uneducated. They don't think, but they're capable of doing so, I bet. ...More than we suspect.
that's no excuse
The tools are there.
they had money for the educations and the best what they could get from the 1900 straight to present.
compare to us we used to study outdated math/dutch colonial books from the 50
while you got multiple choice test and computers in classes
1. the Florida recount --- 2000
2. Ohio disenfranchised African American Voters ---- 2004
that's how Bush won both elections.
It's both, they are stupid and uneducated. Americans with a graduate or in college, support Obama overwhelmingly. Its not a coincidence.
Necroing this because John McCain is an idiot.
Or senile, whichever you prefer.
I for one can't fathom what McCain was thinking when he pulled this little stunt. Snubbing David Letterman, outright lying to David Letterman, and apparently expecting that Letterman would let this slide?
Man, and to think that this man has shot at the presidency.
