John McCain: Lead-Tongued Orator

Dear John McCain,

I'm not going to vote for you, but I have a hell of a lot of respect for you. Still, I would have a little more respect for you if you did two things:

1) Stop coming within an inch of saying "LINE". Reading from the cue cards sucks. Your speeches have the fluidity of a Yugo with water in the gas.

2) Stop saying "Now friends..." Appropriate once per campaign /or/ for snake oil and nerve tonic salesmen, this phrase gets vetted in oratory 101.
