When Will Media Recognize McCain's Serious Dementia Problem

McCain's dementia is obvious. When will our media, mainsteam or otherwise, recognize it?
Anyone can look at McCain in the his video at http://www.therealmccain.com and see how the neurons in his brain simply are not firing as he makes one contradictory statement after another.

Yet surprisingly, no one in the media seems to be talking about it.

At one level, it is not surpring. Dementia is rising to epidemic proportions. The Associated Press: Study: 'Pre-dementia' is rising, especially in men ; Upsurge in 'precursor to Alzheimer's' bodes ill

Today he could not remember how many houses he owned. McCain unsure how many houses he owns

McCain presents a case of incipient Alzheimer's.

I believe that McCain is showing symptoms of dementia pugilistica. His sport at Annapolis was boxing. He was knocked out at least twice in plane crashes. He probably suffered a concussion during his escape from the Forrestal fire. The North Vietnamese beat him and starved him. All of these things can lead to tiny ruptures in the capillaries that supply blood to the brain. If I understand this they heal but they leave scars that may become unduly weak as a result of the aging process perhaps rupturing again and depriving the brain of some oxygen. I have been watching his hands as he speaks extemperaneously. It seems to me that he likes to have something to hold on to and that when he is forced to stand in the open with no prop or podium his hands start to do things unrelated to his speech. As if they were just wandering around on their own
