Saint McCain

Normally you'd think that angering Saint Ronnie and Saint Nancy by divorcing your first wife, committing adultery, and being less than honest in your autobiography about the events which transpired which at least cause a warm feeling to crawl up Chris Matthews' leg.

And, look, I don't really care about anything other than the usual IOKIYAR. I remember watching some game show (The Weakest Link I think) where the question was "Who was the the first divorced president?" The answer, of course, was Saint Ronald Reagan and when it was revealed there were audible gasps in the audience. You can understand their surprise, as during the funeral of Maureen Reagan the camera remain fixed on... Nancy Reagan and not her actual mother.

But only the personal lives and pasts of Democrats will ever matter.
