John McCain is 5'7"? I would have guessed at least 5'10". The media knows about the public height bias and seemed to do a pretty good job hiding this from us. Just like FDR with the wheelchair.
Wouldn't have made a difference to any of us who choose to use our conscious mind, but I don't know if McCain would have gotten the nomination in 2008 if they would have made this obvious. It also doesn't surprise me that a war hawk like McCain is short. I was wondering what that guy's problem was.
Then again, I still stand with Rand and feel optomistic about the Ophthalmologist.
