Noun, verb, POW watch con’t.

Well McCain went on Leno (known to we Letterman fans as "that hump" Leno) and the macro was hit:

Leno: "For a million dollars, how many houses do you have?"

McCain: "Could I just mention to you, Jay, that, at a moment of seriousness. I spent five-and-a-half years in a prison cell. I didn’t have a house. I didn’t have a kitchen table. I didn’t have a table. I didn’t have a chair…

Apparently that is McCain’s 13th visit to "The Tonight Show", a dozen times more than the man he accuses of being a "celebrity", Barack Obama. I’m just glad the Democrats aren’t nominating Joan Embery of the San Diego Zoo.

Stay tuned for the next episode of "Noun, verb, POW" when we go back into McCain’s early years:

Admiral John Sidney McCain, Jr.: Johnny, I’ve looked at your class standing at the Naval Academy and I’m afraid a rank of 894 out of 899 is not likely to get you into flight school. I suggest you prepare yourself for the black-shoe Navy.

Midshipmen McCain: Aw, gee ‘my Dad’, don’t you remember when I was six and you grounded me for five and a half days. ‘My Dad’, how am I expected to finish middle of the pack with that kind of baggage?

Admiral John Sidney McCain Jr.: Okay, Johnny, I’ll make some phone calls. And just ‘Dad’ is fine.

Taking A Short Break To Think About Freedom To Marry



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
