It's in the limbs

On watching the highlights of last night's US presidential debate one thing stood out above all others. That thing was the length of John McCain's arms! They're tiny! To hold the microphone near enough to his mouth his elbows had to be almost at shoulder level. His legs aren't much better either. When he was perched on the stool the dangled off it like a ventriloquist's dummy's legs. I'll be looking out for more disproportionate body parts next time I see him.

    His arms have an odd range of motion due to the torture he underwent in Vietnam. He can't lift them above horizontal.

  2. I'd heard about the torture and how he can't lift his arms above horizontal, but I'd have thought it would have at least left him with longer arms! ;)

  3. Ahh, good to see that Matt "no holds barred" Pitkin hasn't changed since that legendary day when you told one of the prettiest girls we knew that she looked like the flaming skull on my Motorhead t-shirt. Class.
