What is the point to all of this crap?
Behold the frenzy based on one unverified, second-hand quote from one columnist....
Is this the result of McCain trying to work the refs and whining that the old man isn't getting enough coverage? So the press has to grasp at any ridiculous tid bit and try to take it seriously in order to avoid seeming "partisan" towards Obama? Is this all they have to work with on Obama?
McCain should thank his lucky stars that the press largely doesn't fixate on his mutliple flip-flop-flips and stunning mistakes, but yet there they are, every single day, seemingly trying to come up with yet another way to come across as some cranky, bitter, jealous old man who's pissed off that some wipper-snapper is actually more popular.
It's over. I think McCain has morphed into Bob Dole.
Think about it. Two elderly Republicans who'd been jumping at the presidency and failing for decades, they finally find their "in", get the nomination largely on the idea that it's simply their turn, they both are horrible campaigners, their policy ideas are unpopular at best, and mainly consist of continuing to do whatever benefits the most wealthy in the country, and screw the rest of you, they both think that all they need to do is say, "Hey, I'm a wounded war vet." and they'll win the election. Neither of them has/had a coherant reason for being president, or any clear message or vision of where they wanted to take the country.
And both revealed themselves to be cranky, bitter, old white guys with nothing to offer except carping about the young guy and trying to spread slime about them.
At least Dole had a genuine sense of humor that didn't betray an underlying callousness and mean-spiritedness like McCain.
But it's beginning to look like Dole all over again. Only McCain might do worse if he and his campaign can't find anything else to do but spout far-fetched and downright goofy bitches about the guy who offers a new course.
Sen. McCain, the Viagra ad people are on line two.
