McCain and “My Fellow Prisoners”

During a campaign speech in Pennsylvania, Senator John McCain, in mid-sentence, addressed his audience as “my fellow prisoners.” He did it without missing a beat. There was no explanation afterward, and the crowd didn’t seem to know what to make of it. Neither do I.

McCain seemed to be speaking in a sincere tone, trying to talk about his position, so why would he use the word prisoners? And did anyone see the look on Sarah Palin’s face when he said it? Of what is he a prisoner? The present administration? The press corps that was taping his speech? Or was he referring to his audience members as prisoners of his rhetoric?

While the McCain campaign might be busy today trying to concoct an explanation for yesterday’s mistake, my fear is that the real reason behind the misstep was that he is suffering from some sort of psychological problem induced by either senility or post-traumatic stress disorder.

What do you think about his “my fellow prisoners” moment?
