    McCain top guys Terry Nelson and John Weaver are out.

    His campaign looks like Slim Pickens on the bombshell.

    Thank God.

    He was fucking frightening.

    When Imus was pulled from Air, Mcain lost a lot of free pr. Don't under estimate it as factor.

    Good riddance, in terms of his national candidacy.

    The guy is a genuine hero ... none of us could have gone through what he went through in Vietnam.

    But for promoting unconstitutional limits on political speech and for winding up on the wrong side of the immigration debate, he has to go.

    Lesson? It's the war, stupid.

    right... on all counts.

    But it was the war position that Titanic-ed him.

    The GOP is a shitshow. I used to like McCain. He's still about the only Republican candidate that doesn't make me want to vomit. I feel like he'd be a good VP for Obama. I know it won't happen, can't happen, but I'd trust him as an advisor if I were a candidate.

    Kerry's offer in 2004 now seems to be the closest he'll ever get to 1600 Pennsy.

    That leaves, what? Eight white men jockeying for second place?

  12. Money=speech.
    That's the real basis for the "conservative" opposition to him, which started before he ever ran in 2000. If McCain-Feingold really had happened, vicious hacks like David Bossie and Floyd Brown would have had to find real jobs. Ever since 2000, though, he's made himself ridiculous, sucking up to people who would always hate him, and tying himself to a disastrous war. Immigration likely was just the (very) last right hand on the way down.
