McCain is ridiculous…as a matter of fact him and Palin are both ridiculous. They spew out incorrect facts all the time and claim to be experts on everything. The scary thing is that they do this because they know that a large majority of the public will not take the time to research the “real” facts and acquire accurate information to aid them in making the right choice for the country at election time.
