I almost (but not quite) feel sorry for McCain's campaign staff. How can they possibly spin this as a positive? (Emphasis added.)
McCain said he would concentrate on getting more sleep when he can.
"If I put in three or four 18-hour, 20-hour days in a row, I'm not sharp. It's just a fact," the Republican senator from Arizona said. "I'm more sharp if I get a little rest."
McCain said he feels best sleeping until 7:30 or 8 a.m., as opposed to his usual morning drill of rising at 5:30 or 6 a.m.
"It seems to help me to get up a little later in the morning," he said, joking, "Sorry to bother with that intimate detail."
Earth to McCain: the presidency is a 24/7 job.
This is just another piece of evidence that John McCain is the candidate who isn't ready to be President. It's just August, and he is already complaining about the grueling pace of the campaign.
Does he have any idea what's in store for the next occupant of the White House?
Update -- Over at Daily Kos, cookiesandmilk made a poignant comment that I want to highlight:
I think the people working 2 & 3 jobs to keep up in this Bush/McCain economy need more sleep then this beer fortune heir does.
So true. Talk about out of touch. The fact is, McCain isn't doing one of his 2 jobs, he's doing the other one at half strength, and he's whining about it. Meanwhile, lots of American families are every bit as tired as he is, but without $100 million in the bank.
