It's one thing to connect with the electorate by reminding us that despite your bona fides as a military hero, you're not perfect. You got in trouble in school. Raised a little hell. (See my previous post.)
It's another thing to take every possible opportunity to share all of the gory details -- and do so with great pride -- of your years of being a drunken man-slut.
What's even better about these revelations of John McCain's hard-partying youth is that his campaign advisers think they're, well, on strategy.

Makes them seem so ... much... yeeeeeccccchhhhhh.
