We know what John McCain hopes will propel him into the White House. It’s his 40 year old POW stories (cartoon) and other simplistic tidbits with as much substance as a Twinkie. He used his oft repeated tales from Hanoi to answer several questions at the Saddleback Church Forum and the audience ate it up. Love those Twinkies. No matter that Obama gave more compelling, if complex and nuanced, answers to the same questions. American likes drama in digestible segments, and that’s what McCain gave them.
Obama needs to find an antidote to McCain’s anecdotes, and he needs to find it soon!
