Have you seen this Rolling Stones article about McCain yet?
Make-Believe Maverick

A nice, easy-to-quote little bit:
In one vital respect, however, the comparison is deeply unfair to the current president: George W. Bush was a much better pilot.

McCain is so much more frightening than I ever realized.

GW never crashed - but I understand that he never crashed because he flew so seldom. One person, a friend of GW's, who rode along with GW in a single engine prop plane, said he'd never ride with him again! He said He was amazed that GW was still alive.

This was my thought as well. I don't think it's fair to compare the two Republicans on that front.

Also, even if it's true, Presidents rarely need to fly their own planes.

I also dislike the tactic of tying McCain to GWB. It's unquestionably effective, but not substantive.

Knowing when not to fly is a skill.

McCain = scary

Wow - he should be in some hardcore anger-management therapy.

Thanks for posting the link to the story...
