Doddering Presidential Aspirant Needs Help with His Bib

I mean, come on old man, at least tie the goddam bib yourself.

Sheesh.

I enjoy mockery of McCain--any Republican, really--but I know that he has trouble lifting his arms because of his torture injuries. I don't know if he would be able to tie the bib.

Does he now refer to his disability being caused by "enhanced interrogation" injuries?

(c'mon -- be anti-torture! Americans are SO into that!! we promise!)

I dearly love all Republicans, Democrats, i.e., Americans, all we assholes (and aren't we all among them) who have been trumpeting our great all-American "values" as we go around bombing the shit out of everyone "supporting terrorism" in the name of "tolerance" and "democracy."

Hey, I have my Obama flag-pin....

hey you c-word, you are tying the bib too tight

(mccain has common language for even the help)

I'm with anonymous here. You have to be able to get your elbows above your forehead to tie a bib, and McCain can't do that.

I wish I was tying that bib on the old coot.
They'd have to cut it off with the jaws of life.

From the Wikki:

"McCain fractured both arms and a leg, and then nearly drowned, when he parachuted into Trúc Bạch Lake in Hanoi. Although McCain was badly wounded, his captors refused to treat his injuries, instead beating and interrogating him to get information. His injuries left him permanently incapable of raising his arms above his head."

I would've felt sorry for McCain back when he was a POW. Now that he's just a GWB ball-licker, he can just choke on that chili for all I care.

...What dguz said.

Shhh... he's sleeping.

Dguzman hits the lottery again!

Um, who wears a bib to eat chili?

@sue j:

People who drool.

It's true that McCain has a limited range of motion for his arms because of being tortured in Vietnam. Therefore it's mean and small-minded to make fun of him for getting assistance with a bib. It's less mean to wonder (a) why he needs a bib in the first place and (b) why his campaign is dumb enough to let him get photographed this way.

Nevertheless, I'll keep this picture handy in case I need an nice illustration for my blog whenever the McCain campaign or its adherents aim cheap-shot insults at Obama, especially when they do it with crudely photoshopped images. Turnabout is fair play.

As a Reds fan, this photo makes me sick. How can the Wishbone C be worn by such a....republican?! My worlds have collided and it sucks.
