In The Seventies
The thing about John McCain is not only is he in his 70's, he's also helplessly mired in the 70's decade. First, he likens Barack Obama to Jimmy Carter, now, even worse, we find out McCain is also a big Abba fan. I don't expect him to be a fan of hip-hop, or My Chemical Romance, but if you're going to get all retro, why choose the campest, kitschiest band of the seventies? The fact that he is using this as a way to woo disaffected Clinton supporters says a lot about how out of it they are.
McCain, on his way to wrapping up the GOP nomination, started playing ABBA's Take A Chance On Me at his rallies, and that's what we'd be doing, taking a chance that he won't continue the detrimental failed policies of the Bush administration. Except he will, because he has said he will.
Let's hope that in November, McCain meets his Waterloo
