Poor Soul…

Last night was John McCain’s acceptance speech. After what was a somewhat rocky start due to some protesters and an ADD crowd, I thought McCain settled in and did very nicely. It wasn’t the stuff of legend – McCain is not gifted with incredible oratory skills or anything, but it was solid, and he effectively communicated his message. The thing that sticks out to me about the man in general is the stiffness with which he moves – a product of his years in the Hanoi Hilton as a POW. The stories he told about that were moving. Though it may not make him qualified to be President, his steadfastness during his imprisonment shows his courage, and his service afterward (when so many vets went the other way) shows his extraordinary commitment to this country. Hopefully we can all agree on that.

However, the title of this post doesn’t refer to McCain, but to one of the delegates at the convention last night. At one point, they cut to the crowd cheering, and a guy holding up a sign. Here it is:



Poor guy. He’s going to hear about this one for quite a long time to come, I’m afraid.
