If you're anything like me, then — after seven years of being governed by a president who decides to invade foreign countries based upon the council he receives from having conversations with God — you can't wait to elect a guy who's afraid to throw a hat on the bed…
McCain has a whole slew of superstitions and rituals, many stemming from his days as a Navy fighter pilot, a notoriously superstitious bunch. He won't throw a hat on a bed (bad luck), and he carries a lucky feather, a lucky compass, and a lucky penny — and nickel, and quarter.
"Am I superstitious? I'm that," McCain said. "But I don't think I'm alone there."
Not by a long shot. Millions of people all over the world believe in magical forces of darkness that are always trying to get at them, that must be held back by use of charms and idols.
These people are usually called "superstitious," but I would prefer to call them "not the person who gets to decide whether or not me and my family die under a radioactive mushroom cloud."
I think I'll cross my fingers and hope it all works out okay in the end.
