A Sleazy Pitch

My Friends, recall this little catch-phrase used by McCain at the Presidential Debate? I thought "my friends" came across as patronizing, and presumptive. but then I was reading a comment on Towleroad post about it, and only then did I understand why I had such negative associations with the phrase:

McCain needs to quit it with the "My friends" routine. It's so played. The only other times I hear such constant repetition of "my friend" is when I'm in a cab or electronics store, and I'm getting ripped off. "For you, my friend, special price for you, my friend."
