John McCain calls Barack Obama “That One”

Aside from the Sense-of-Entitlement moment when John McCain pointed at Obama and called him "that one,"
I found the McCainiac stalking around behind Obama particularly disturbing.  And what was he trying to do with his hand.  During one of Obama’s answers, John McCain placed himself purposefully in the camera’s line-of-sight and made some weird gesture, then stalked around behind Obama before hobbling back to his stool.  Very strange and commented on by both Cenk Uygur and Michael Shure as it happened.

John McCain’s "Sense-of-Entitlement" produced the "That One" comment and comes from his upbringing in a high ranking US navy family living in extremely lavish government quarters like members of some American royalty.  His father and grandfather were both admirals.  McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone in the 1930’s.  Panamanians from Panama City tended their US Navy provided palatial estate, and the black enlisted navy stewards (yes it is an enlisted rank and then filled primarily with blacks and philipinos) tended them like European monarchy.  When John McCain entered the US Naval Academy it was a big step down in rank and standing.  He had been inculcated throughout his early life with a sense-of-entitlement like that of a white plantation owner’s son and tried to brush Barack Obama off like he has to minorities and less than highest-upper class so many times in the past.
