The following is a clip from an article by Thomas Sowell. I have not included the part explaining why he won't vote for Hussein because it is rather like beating a dead horse and after awhile bores me. Here's what he writes about McCain.

'John, you are a flawed man. You are a bit old, a bit looney, and you have a notoriously bad temper. This perfectly qualifies you, in my humble opinion, to lead us for the next eight years. I WANT your trembling hand on the nuclear button.
Think about it.
'We have Kim Jong IL, Chavez, and Ahmadenijad all running around like lunatics, threatening America, and threatening to plunge the world into nuclear Armageddon. We have Putin and the Chinese blustering and rattling their sabres at us. I want John McCain in the Oval Office, and I want him to be really pissed-off at all these other nut-jobs around the planet.
'John, once you are elected, I want you to go into the Oval Office, and throw one of your perfect FITS. Jump up and down and throw something through a plate glass window. Rip the drapes down, and foam at the mouth a bit. And, I want the whole thing on camera so that Ahmadinejad can see it. I want all of these 'world leaders' to lay awake at night, and to break out in a cold sweat every time they think of messing with the United States of America .
'I want the nuclear button sitting right next to the alarm clock on your night stand. I want pictures of this to be sent to Iran , Russia , China , Venezuela , Cuba , Libya , Syria , Pakistan , and those other freaks in the sheets, the Saudis. On the domestic front, poor John did try and reach across the aisle to the opposition in a desperate effort to compromise, and to get the Congress to do something. You may not agree with his efforts, but at least he TRIED. For all his efforts, all he got handed to him was his head in a basket. The liberals are pissed at him, and the conservatives are pissed at him. Just my kinda guy.
'I predict that John will select Senator Joe Lieberman as his running mate. Good choice. I want a Jew whose memory of the Holocaust is still fresh in his mind, and who is royally pissed-off at all of these towel-headed morons in the Middle East to be the next in line if something should happen to John. Shalom, Vice President Joe. One heart-beat from the Oval Office.
'Finally: John McCain knows, on a most personal level, what it is to suffer horrible torture for years, and to see others die, right in front of you, for their love of America. When you ask him about it, he will tell you that what he did was 'nothing special.'Even more incredibly, he states that ANY American, who truly loves his country, would do exactly the same as he did in that situation. You and I will have a hard time believing that; but, the real point is that John McCain believes that about the 'average American,' and that, dear friends and neighbors, is why I will cast my one poor ballot on election day for John McCain ----- warts and all.'
