Peevish McCain Loses More Ground

This is one of the creepiest things I’ve seen in awhile … at least since the last time I watched the Straight Talker for any length of time. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkykrDu32Wo That one?  Really?  That soft, fake-friendly voice is downright threatening, don’t … Continue reading
