John McCain Doesn't Work Weekends

McCain's Been Working For the Weekends Since February

Besides a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live, one rally in April, and some hosting duties at home in Arizona, John McCain has taken the last 20 weekends off.

Each Saturday and Sunday he plans no campaign events and hides from the media. While out of the spotlight, McCain rests up, reviews policy, and privately meets with advisers and contributors, according to Politico. Since McCain admitted he doesn't know how to use a computer, we know he doesn't spend the time catching up on his email.

McCain's commitment to keep his weekends for himself, refreshingly deviates from the nonstop, and often empty, coverage of the campaign. But the Politico story explores the tightrope walk McCain's age (71) presents. By taking weekends off McCain opens himself up to criticism that he doesn't have the energy to be President, but if he gets sick that won't look good either.

While this conscious decision to take a weekly media break might have made sense during the Democratic primary, it may be difficult to maintain during the general election. That's probably why McCain's aides note that he won't be taking as many weekends off this Summer. Will the time off help McCain sprint to the finish, or give Barack Obama a head start?

It has always been my understanding that McCain was not legally divorced when he met Cindy, but that he and Carol had been separated for some time. I could be wrong too, though. Anyway, like you said, it's not really an important issue.

Hmm... I had read that he met Cindy in April of 1979 and he and Carol separated later that year only to divorce in April of the following year and marry Cindy in May. My sources might be wrong though. I did read it somewhere on the internet but it might of been some silly source like wikipedia or soemthign weak like that. :?Anyway,I don't think his being married to an heiress or having a failed marriage are "real issues" either. Although I do think it is neat that both his wives have five letter first names that begin with 'C'. Neat in the geekiest of ways, of course. :oops:

I love it, cab.Second "this is a non-issue" to the whole McCain and Hensley thing. Just to set the record straight though, he did not leave his wife for her. They had separated long before he met Cindy.

Yeah, McCain's like Bush. He's one of us. You know, left his wife for a woman 18 years younger who also happened to have a hundred million dollars. Just like us!

I don't think it really applies to McCain or Obama either. Cheney maybe, but not McCain or Obama.

If anything were to make McCain an elitist it would be his wife's vast fortune and not computer illiteracy. That being said, I don't think either canidate is elitist, at least not according to the definition bella has provided us with.

An elitist is anyone the media wants to tag as smarter than the voting public without making it known that they think the voting public is stupid.

No, but he could be spending his days talking to us...

Maybe MC definition of being savvy via a computer is different from yours. Sighs. I just don't see the issue. Will he really be spending his days e-mailing Senate.
