Rumor has it ...
In Arizona there are rumors flying around that he suffered a fairly serious stroke a couple of weeks ago and Cindy and his handlers have been trying to keep it quiet. He cannot speak normally and he becomes enraged when he cannot find a word or get a sentence out. The story goes that he's spending every hour out of the limelight with physio-therapists and speech therapists to try and undo the damage the Incident caused. Meantime Sarah Palin is out there using the down time for McCain as an opportunity to position herself into national Republican Party politics. Not going to happen. They hate the bitch! But she's trying none-the-less.
The GOP announced that on Election Night in Phoenix while the Repubs are at one of the big resorts in the ballroom waiting for the results of the election to come in - McCain will not be with the people in the Ball Room but will rather be camped out on the lawn with a few reporters and a handful of close friends. Is this to avoid public humiliation or is it to keep people from seeing the results of his recent stroke by getting too close to him? Lot's of speculation about what that really means. There are rumors that he cannot reliably recognize people without being coached and they don't want the supporters and the public to know how far gone he really is!
Every since he brought Sarah Palin in as the VP - he's been going down hill in ways no one ever expected. Almost as though she's causing this stuff or casting spells on him or drugging his food or something! The man is not in good health and is 73 years old. The "vigorous" outward appearance has been replaced by a confused, cranky old fart and his closest friends don't want the world to see that side of him as he's loosing on Election Night.
We're betting he'll be checked into the Mayo Clinic by November 5th and they'll make an announcement about his health taking a sudden turn for the worse just after the election. If the Stroke Rumors are true - they can only hide it from the public for so long! And it's not the first one he's had, by the way.
