Limbo dancing and the Los Angeles Times.

requires the dancer to go lower and lower bending backwards and sliding under a pole. Often the question is asked:

"How low can he go?"

The Los Angeles Times has answered the question.

"It is a legitimate question to ask about the commander in chief: Is he fit to serve," said Robert Schriebman, a senior Pentagon tax advisor and tax attorney who recently retired as a judge advocate for a unit of the California National Guard.

If McCain can hike across the Grand Canyon, then why should he be getting disability payments from the government that are tax-exempt, Schriebman asked.

McCain shattered his knee and broke both arms when he was shot down over North Vietnam in 1967.

In his autobiographies, McCain said that his knee still bothered him in cold weather and that he was unable to raise his hands above his shoulders.

It is likely that 80% of the Times' employees were young and supple and able to dance the Limbo when John McCain was a wounded prisoner of war, captured while fighting for his country. It is likely that they are able to raise their arms and comb their hair.

This hit piece tells us how low they can go, and they can go no lower.

They have hit bottom. They are in the dirt.

Shame on them. Shame, shame, shame.
