McCain: Politics is Harder Than I Thought

Here's some video of John McCain's speech tonight in New Orleans. I'm not sure what's most painful about McCain's delivery. But there's a lot to choose from.

The whole speech is shot through with domestic policy lists in which McCain clearly has no interest.

His applause lines are flatter than four-month old Coke.

It's hard to find words to describe how the mechanical impression of McCain's arm movements and turns. Let's put it this way. His arm movements are not nearly as forced as his ghoulishly phony smile. Whatever you do, don't buy anything from this guy.

One snide characterization of George Bush I speech was "Memo: I care." With John McCain, it's more of a long-winded "Memo: I'd like to look like I care, but it's a lot harder than I thought."

Not exactly a winning message.

Well, at least his smile isn't as creepy as the one he gave after his "Follow Bin Laden to the gates of hell" comment last year.

Why does he blink all the time? It's kind of offputting. Does he need to saline his contacts?
