Meet the Press Memory Test

Poor old McCain, I feel sorry for him, cause you know, age happens to all of us if we live long enough.

Abraham Lincolin once said:

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

Well, John McCain removed all doubt this morning on Meet the Press. Just who is this mysterious fifth Secretary of State the endorsed John McCain? McCain can’t remember who that fifth person is, gosh darn it, even as noticeably, Tom Brokaw offered no help at reminding the elder McCain who this unknown fifth Secretary of State actually happens to be, as nobody appears to know who it is? McCain had a very senior, senior moment there and gosh darn it, don't you JUST know that when the Meet the Press transcript finally does come out, our liberal media will either delete that part completely or entirely re-write it. Our corporate media does this time and again for Republican candidates but they NEVER do it for Democrats, NOT EVER. John McCain has a serious problem but no way would Tom Brokaw, not for a single critical minute, consider it his job to inform the American public about the possibility of a serious medical question with regard to John McCain and what Republicans are seriously able to ignore, thanks to our "liberal" media. There is NO DOUBT whatsoever, that if Obama were an aged Democrat having this kind of memory problem of who and who did not actually endorsed him, our "liberal" media would be airing it 24/7, non-stop.

UPDATE: I just reviewed all the videos of Meet the Press for today, and wouldn't you know it, McCain's senior moment is not a recorded part of this mornings interview anymore. It won't be in the transcript either.

UPDATE II: Josh Marshall catches the act on Meet the Press, BUT it isn't the first time McCain's memory failed this particular test. Remember Brian Williams and Chuck Todd of MSNBC interviewed McCain right along beside Palin, and Brian mentioned the Powell endorsement of Obama during the interview, than we see Palin mentioned that McCain had four endorsements of Secretaries of State, but McCain corrected her immediately, saying it was five and proceeded to rattle off the names of only four individuals, and McCain didn't seem to realize he had, indeed, named only four individuals?

Well I guess I'm wrong as here is a transcript I found of Brian Williams interview and I did not hear McCain mention Shultz:

PALIN: And, look, let me interrupt for a second here too. I’m not going to toot my own horn. But I do I have more executive experience than Barack Obama even has, dealing with multibillion- dollar budgets and thousands of employees in positions as mayor, as manager, as a regulator of oil and gas, and then as governor.

But let’s not forget also, in this context of one endorsement, Senator -- or Colin Powell’s, that you have received the endorsement of at least four former secretaries of state and

MCCAIN: Five secretaries...

PALIN: Five.

MCCAIN: ... former secretaries of state.

PALIN: And hundreds of retired top U.S. brass and U.S. military brass that see also in John McCain the ability to win the wars and to keep our nation safe. And, of course, those who are in more economic minded also, who are endorsing John McCain because they know too that he will get our economy back on track. He will reduce taxes on our small businesses and on our families, so that we can keep more of what we produce and earn so that we can hire more people as business owners.

That’s how jobs are created. That’s how the economy gets rolling. And he’s got that in him. He’s got that in his plan, and that’s recognized. So I’m appreciative of all the endorsements that you have received. MCCAIN: Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, Jim Baker, Larry Eagleburger, and Al Hage, all of those have been strong supporters of mine, plus 200 or more retired generals and admirals. I am more proud of that.

Incidentally George Shultz was born in 1920, which means he is close to 90 years old right now, so did he really endorse McCain?
