If John McCain is trying to advocate for
(A) Arizona as a state that shouldn’t be looked at as the most ass-backwards place in America at this very moment,
(B) Ageism as something not to be laughed about, but to be taken very seriously,
(C) Himself as a political voice who can still speak on a national scale without being regarded by anybody not already firmly in his corner as anything but someone who needs to be reminded to take his Metamucil every day at three,
…he’s not doing such a great job at it.

It’s like if Cormac McCarthy adapting Mr. Magoo for Tim Allen and the guy who played Wilson. Just… awful.
