"Tonight, shortly before touchdown, McCain becomes aware that his hair is standing up. "John," he says to [chief political adviser John Weaver, "I think my hair is out of place." He announces this out loud because he cannot lift his arms above his shoulders. Weaver, casually dressed and a soft-spoken Texas gentleman, reaches across the top of McCain's head, smoothing it. There is a tenderness in the gesture, as there is whenever Weaver straightens McCain's collar or brushes the lint from his jacket. There is tenderness, but there is also a kind of sadness."
Oh please, I'm going to hurl. Yes, we are aware of McCain's old war injuries (I assume that's what this is), but what's with the "tenderness and sadness" bit? How pathetique, the absolute pathos of it all!
