Bush and McCain aren't afraid to show they care

It looks like some sort of televangelist laying-on-hands event.

It does.

John seems to want more out the relationship than George does.

I don't know about that; McCain appears to me to have a bit of a gritted-teeth thing goin' on.

Joe Scarborough was in the crowd cheering for Bush.  He hosts a political show on MSNBC.  I don't think he would consider himself a journalist, but something still seems wrong with that.

He has to do that to counteract the pervasively liberal press  ;D

You offer no proof. I will continue to give Scarborough and MSNBC the benefit of the doubt as well as assume that the media is indeed pervasively liberal.

How are you liking my ZAP impersonations?

Hi, Lurker here.

I was in the audience at that event in Pensacola, FL yesterday.  Scarborough was there primarily because he is a former Congressman representing Pensacola.  He is a notable figure in the Pensacola community.  Sure, he was supporting Bush, but I think he was there more because of his ties in the community.

It wasn't a community gathering; it was a partisan assembly for which you must have tickets.

I didn't say it was a community gathering.  I know you had to have tickets to attend.  What I was saying was that Scarborough was only there because it was a rally in Pensacola.  If it were in Tallahassee he wouldn't have been there.

I don't get it.  What are you saying?  That he's not partisan?

No, he is partisan.  He was a Republican Congressman, that doesn't just change when you start a talk show.  I don't think that his show is non-partisan.

Talk-show host or not, he would have still been there.

I think it's weird that so many people like McCain.  My girlfriend interned for him here in AZ, and then in DC.  She says he is the biggest a-hole, is hypocritical, and she would never vote for him.  This coming from an ex-die hard McCain fan
