Now It's McCain

I'd pretty much assumed that McCain would be the Rethuglican nominee, despite his apparent senility. Today, with Romney dropping out, that looks inevitable. I don't see Huckabee picking up enough support to beat McCain in the remaining contests (but I could be wrong). The media loves John McCain, so we'll be hearing "maverick" and "straight shooter" from now until November. I might as well start tearing my hair out now. John McCain has been pandering (albeit more subtly) as much and as long as Romney. The only things that McCain has been consistant on is his desire for more wars (and his ego). The man is dangerous. Regardless of who you prefer between Clinton and Obama, McCain must be defeated.

If the Dems are smart (yeah, I know), they'll run those photos of McCain gettin' huggy-wuggy with Bush and shred his "maverick" rep to ribbons. Me, I want McCain to tack to the right wing as much as possible to appeal to the 25 percenters who still think Bush is the cat's meow. He'll drive away the independents and go down in flames in the election.

Please, Senator McCain! The GOP is packed with wingnuts who'd love to run alongside you. Like Li'l Ricky Santorum. Or Mike Huckabee. Heck, hire Joe Scarborough. Someone, anyone. Just make sure it's a bona fide movement conservative nutcase who'll win over the CPAC crowd and drive everyone else off.

Do it for the good of America.

All the Dems need to do is spell out McCain's right-wing record and dispel this notion that he's any kind of a maverick or moderate, and the independent voters will desert him. But of course the Dems may not be smart enough to point these facts out.

Truffle is right, though, if he picks someone right-wing enough as a running mate that might send the same message. And he may just do that to appease the right-wing base.
