Is McCain sicker than we know, ask Alex Cockburn and Fred Gardner.  Cockburn’s attitude towards McCain is properly lurid and sensationalistic; here he speculates that Crazy John might be in the terminal stages of melanoma.

    Huh? Is Cockburn from Muncie?

    He’s from Northern Ireland. He made his mark as a journalist in the UK in the 60s and in NYC in the 70s, today he lives in eastern California. But he did mention Muncie recently, saying that Sarah Palin shows a condescending attitude to people in places like Muncie.

    “Places like Muncie”- what does that mean? Places that don’t have free-roaming wolves to aerially shoot?

    I guess Muncie isn’t all that bad if it elicits Palin’s condescension.

    Places with unemployment approaching 50%. Btw, Palin’s trip to Muncie was very brief- she flew into the Muncie airport, then drove to some other town. She wasn’t here long enough to condescend to Muncie-ites.
