This time, can we elect the smart guy instead....

It's Thursday so I've been blogging this morning at Art Of The Possible. I have two posts up today because I'm going to the dentist this afternoon and wanted to give them something to think about over there. Check it out. I posted on a hard core conservative endorsing Obama and on evidence supporting my long held belief that the economy does better under Democrats.

Meanwhile, I've got to get ready to go, but in case you were wondering who the smart guy is in the race -- well -- it's not this one.

I believe this video is pretty old, but I haven't noticed that McCain is any sharper lately. If anything he's become less so under the strain of the race. "Exhibit A" being this incomprehensible interview he gave to a Spanish media outlet in which it appears he doesn't know who the leader of Spain is and quite possibly doesn't even know where Spain itself is located.

Okay that may be overstating it a little. He probably could find Spain on a map, but he surely sounds confused if the translations are accurate. The speculation about his possible lapse into dementia look more credible every day. I think it really is time for Americans to insist he release his medical records at least undergo testing for cognitive function with those records made public.

More on this story at Talking Points Memo, Americablog and Obsidian Wings.

Update: This story is still developing. Much more now at Memeorandum. The WaPo picked it up from the blogs, so it should likely hit the teevee sometime soon. And it appears the English version audio is now available. Cue the talking heads. I think this one will get some serious legs before the day is out.

Libby, of course McCain is showing signs of dementia, but he is the Manchurian candidate for the neo-cons who run the show from behind the scenes. Even if he died tomorrow, no-one would notice. They'd merely soak him in formaldehyde and attach bionics to his voice box. Coverage of Election 2008 should be moved from the news networks ... to the SciFi channel.

LOL SC. Who was the guy that happened to in Europe. Was it Franco, who was on life support for months on end before they admitted he was really dead? Reminds me of that.

Franco, yes. Kim Jong Il is ill, they say, but that should be an easy fix: they can replace him with a John McCain action figure. No-one would know the diff ...
