I had a good chat over coffee at a convenience store today.
I stopped for coffee this morning at my favorite convenience store,
and a customer at the counter asked me if I thought she was an airhead. Naturally I asked who, and he said “Sarah.” I told him I did, and then we started chatting. He said that he didn’t think McCain was that bad, but he was concerned that Sarah had been picked for a running mate.
I told the guy that I thought McCain, just like the statement in “A Few Good Men” had “…no code. He had no honor…”
“Did you know,” I asked, “that McCain was out chasing skirts before he had divorced his first wife, who had been disfigured in an accident while he was a POW? Or that he had crashed four aircraft prior to the one in which he was shot down? Or that he finished right near the bottom of his Naval Academy graduating class? Or that he consistently voted against bills for vet benefits? Shall I go on?’
The guy had not heard any of this. We had about five more minutes after that, and when I left, I heard him asking the clerk “Did you know…”
It was a good cup of coffee.
