"Dear John" - an open letter to McCain by Sybil Adelman Sage

Dear John,

What's happened to "country first" John? I don't know who you are anymore. You're hardly the first guy to go for a younger woman, but nobody else has handed over the vice-presidency to arm candy!

Sure, Sarah is attractive and she's doing her best to find out everything about you, which must be flattering, but choosing her reveals a lot about you. "Team Maverick" says your priority is "winning first," the hell with the country's security and our economic disaster.

Are you really convinced this woman is prepared to take over should your age or health require that? This is the United States we're talking about. It's not Russ & Daughter delicacy shop. There was time for the daughter to be trained, and the worst she could do was slice the lox too thick. Do you know how terrified most of us are at the prospect of Sarah Palin taking office?

And what was all that waffling about whether or not you'd turn up for the debate? Threatening to stand up the nation won't help your "temperament problem." So, you decide you'll show up, but you'll refuse to look at Obama. Well, that's real mature and healthy. Maybe Cindy and you have an agreement never to show any warmth though some of us would like to know why she's ALWAYS at your side. You could pass for a feeble old guy and a surprisingly well-dressed, hired attendant.
