It seems Mccain takes superstition to a new level.
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.
McCain also carries a nickel he found outside his Columbia, S.C., hotel just before the primary there (and his second primary win gave him momentum into Florida, ending the race).
He’s also got a quarter in there, “but I think he just found that on the ground,” Buchanan said. “It’s always what he finds heads up.” Still, it’s what she called a “a lucky drummer boy quarter” a 1976 commemorative quarter for the bicentennial.
Isn’t the fable “throw a hat on the bed, woolly mammoth make you dead?”
