Maybe Jones was right about that McCain guy ...

    Senator John McCain of Arizona has made a dramatic recovery in the Granite State, pulling within 3 percentage points of front-runner Mitt Romney, a new poll indicates.

    Good for him. He always has been the "least objectionable" choice in my book.

    And since the ethnic cleansing in Iraq is complete and the neighborhoods are no longer divided and violence is down . . . it's no longer a big deal to stay there longer. The worst is over. The only question now is whether Iraq will ever develop a functioning and stable government. I doubt it will. But right now "stay the course" doesn't look quite as stupid as it did one year ago. The "course" veered so far off the tracks earlier that it can only get better, no matter who is in the Oval Office.
     
  3. He's got four months left to pander.
    Let's see what he does down South.

    UPDATE -- The Concord Monitor thinks you might be right, at least vis a vis the Mittmeister.

    That will leave a mark.

    Kudos to them for seeing through the recent pathetic, whoring.

    Wow.

    Someone on that paper's ed board has some serious stones.

    And it comes on the heels of both papers in Boston -- the city where Romney was governor less than a year ago -- endorsing McCain. What more do you need to know about the guy?

    I can tell you.

    They can't stand the faux Kennedy accent, which is a liability in itself.

    We're talking Mitt Romney, not Mayor Quimby here, right? Mitt's accent is geographically neutral, as far as I can tell.

    Then you haven't gotten recorded campaign calls from him like I have (among everyone else) over the past three weeks. He adds that Bostonian accent when saying his last name. It sounds like "Romneee" than "Romney."

    Sorry, I live in Massachusetts. The presidential campaigns leave us alone. Super Tuesday has its drawbacks (i.e., the irrelevancy of our primary vote), but at least we're not getting barraged by candidates the way Iowans or New Hampshirites do.

    We do get barraged. Have you not seen the ads on the Boston TV stations?

    I would love it if McCain became the next president...
