whats up with his big cheeks?
Skin cancer surgery on his face 8 years ago went deep.
This has puffed up his skin.
His arms don't appear to be the right proportion
He broke both arms during the Vietnam war. His captors refused to give him surgery that he needed on his broken arms.
I think he even moves funny.
His captors did surgery on a broken leg of his while he was a POW in Vietnam. They severely screwed up the surgery. They cut all his muscles, etc etc
He got all these injuries while serving America and while undergoing extreme torture at the hands of the enemy.
The skin cancer he got because he lives in Arizona - which has the highest skin cancer rate in America.

He survived two airplane crashes and a collision with power lines.
McCain and his fellow pilots were frustrated by micromanagement from Washington, and he would later write that "In all candor, we thought our civilian commanders were complete idiots who didn’t have the least notion of what it took to win the war."
McCain was almost killed on July 29, 1967 when he was at the epicenter of the Forrestal fire.
The ensuing fire killed 134 sailors and took 24 hours to control. As Forrestal headed for repairs, McCain volunteered for the USS Oriskany.
In August of 1968, a program of severe torture began on McCain, at the same time as he was suffering from dysentery, and McCain made an anti-American propaganda "confession". He has always felt that his statement was dishonorable, but as he would later write, "I had learned what we all learned over there: Every man has his breaking point. I had reached mine."
McCain became enmeshed in a scandal during the 1980s when he was one of five United States Senators comprising the so-called "Keating Five". Between 1982 and 1987, McCain had received $112,000 in legal political contributions from Charles Keating Jr. and his associates at Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, along with trips on Keating's jets that McCain failed to repay until two years later. In 1987, McCain was one of the five senators whom Keating contacted in order to prevent the government’s seizure of Lincoln, which was by then insolvent and being investigated for making questionable efforts to regain solvency. McCain met twice with federal regulators to discuss the government's investigation of Lincoln.
On his Keating Five experience, McCain said: "The appearance of it was wrong. It's a wrong appearance when a group of senators appear in a meeting with a group of regulators, because it conveys the impression of undue and improper influence. And it was the wrong thing to do." Federal regulators ultimately filed a civil suit against Keating. The five senators came under investigation for attempting to influence the regulators. In the end, none of the senators were charged with any crime. McCain was rebuked by the Senate Ethics Committee for exercising "poor judgment", but their 1991 report said that McCain's "actions were not improper nor attended with gross negligence and did not reach the level of requiring institutional action against him."
In 1989, Cindy McCain became addicted to opioid painkillers such as Percocet and Vicodin, which she initially took to alleviate pain following two spinal surgeries for ruptured discs and to ease emotional stress during the Keating Five scandal, which involved her as a bookkeeper who had difficulty finding receipts. The addiction progressed to where she resorted to stealing drugs
On July 3, 1965 McCain married Carol Shepp, a model originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In 1979, McCain met and began a relationship with Cindy Lou Hensley, a teacher from Phoenix, Arizona, the only child of the founder of Hensley & Co.
His wife Carol accepted a divorce in February of 1980, effective in April of 1980.... McCain and Hensley were married on May 17, 1980.

You should be worry, very worrry, McCain is favor by the same people that got Bush elected in 2000.
The same people that pushed our war, that is bankrupting our country and that is giving away our children future for profits and greed.
Yes, you should be very afraid, because McCain is nothing more than another Bush with a different face.
