Arizona Senator John McCain, on the verge of clinching the Republican nomination, is slowing down just before the finish line to give Canada a shout-out for enduring NAFTA and sending our young people to put themselves in harm's way for the questionable U.S. client regime in Kabul. This page just isn't feeling the love, and won't be voting for Mr. McCain. Or Mr. Huckabee. Or Mr. Obama. Or Ms. Clinton. Not even marking an 'X' for Ralph Nader. In fact, I'm pretty sure that there will be virtually no Canadians casting ballots for any of the leading (or following) Presidential candidates.
Maybe Mr. McCain wants to fill dead air and talk to people outside of the United States who are a little less aware of his plans to occupy Iraq in perpetuity. Maybe he's just trying to talk about something other than what exactly happened between him and Vicki Iseman. Or maybe, in mistaking Canada for a swing state, the guy just has a problem with his sense of direction, like a lot of other 71-year olds do.
