Was anyone else astounded by the number of times McCain’s used of the phrase “my friends” last night? The senator from AZ referred to the Belmont audience as “my friends” 19 times. He also called Obama his friend once, twice referred to an audience questioner as his friend, and told an anecdote about an “old veteran friend.”
Is this something McCain does all the time? Was he channeling Nashville native Hank Williams Jr, known the world over for his "rowdy friends?" Your guess is as good as mine.
