The Daily Show did something on McCain's melanoma. Pundits on MSNBC last night after the debate kept talking about how old and sick McCain looked. And CNN?
Clips of McCain making supposed age-related gaffes circulate on the Internet. Last month, Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Missouri Democrat and a supporter of Democratic candidate Sen. Barack Obama, said McCain's age and skin cancer history were fair game as a campaign issue. "We're talking about a reality here that we have to face." A few days ago, a liberal activist group, Brave New Films, ran a full-page ad in the New York Times, accompanied by a petition signed by more than 2,700 physicians calling on McCain to release his full medical records.
These are all reasonable questions and concerns for the Presidency, considering Reagan's legacy of having dementia while in office. It's good to see them out there so the public has a choice on the matter.
