I just wonder if the doctors would dare to say if bumping fists would be a good alternative to shaking hands, or not. Maybe a journalist with nothing better to do could find one to interview?

more proof the the elderly and frail should not run for the office the president of the US - no worries though, she appears to have great relationships with plastic surgeons who can fix her right up!

To think of the ways I can damage a person with a hand shake is redundant.
Im qute sure it was an assult.
Bill Clinton nearly bit my ear off and yanked my arm off for saying something he didnt like when I was 18 or so not to mention I got a good elbow in the ribs as well.. Yes for real.
He said to me "better watch it son". with a smile of course.
At the time I wasnt even into politics, I was at some kind of democratic gathering and my aunt brought me (didnt want to go).
IMO, Slick Willy as hes called today is your typical wife beater hillbilly hes just dressed in a suit and tie.
Now that I am politically motivated Obama sucks...
Obama can lend all his support to George Bushophobia.
George Bushophobia makes the democratic party spin.

Ha! I was thinking the same thing. She's such a delicate little flower. I was wondering why she hasn't learned how to properly shake a hand before. But then again, I don't think she could've learned from her husband. Didn't I read somewhere that he can't lift his arms to far because of arthritis? Boy, those two are falling apart at the seams, both mentally and physically.

And what's up with the Country Club Hills poster? Just a tad unhinged.

A clever Roveian rouse to garner sympathy and make the cold-blooded, repubs seem a little more human. I'm looking forward to the TMZ video showing Mrs. Money Bags using that hand to slam Memosas at lightning speed.

Now that his wife's hand is paralyzed, he can cheat on her with a younger woman like he did with his first wife. I'm sure Cindy would understand.
If we have to sequester every man or women in this country for cheating there would be no one on topix. At least McCain was seeing a woman.

Don't worry, folks, I'm sure the heiress to a massive beer distributorship (Budweiser) in Phoenix has adequate health insurance. Every think about how many hundreds, if not thousands, of guys spend all day hoisting beer kegs and cases on their shoulders, getting herniated discs and pinched nerves, to keep her in silk underwear and imported golf shoes? Get a job, lady!

Rich people don't buy insurance - what the hell for? Why would someone get a job when they are worth 1/2 billion? I'd love to kiss her boo boo!

Cindy McCain is really a highly admirable woman, having fought back from a stroke and a severe back injury. Then there are all of the programs she does for children around the world. She will be a gracious and effective First Lady.
