John McCain’s Famous Last Words

Filed under: Election 2008,Idiocy,John McCain,Republicans — Psycheout @ 6:56 pm

These may be the words etched on the John McCain 2008 Campaign tombstone. An epitaph, if you will. “I’m very confident.” And who wouldn’t be?

…a tough couple weeks — which included news of having just $2 million in cash on hand (and perhaps just as much debt) and a campaign shakeup….


Sen. John McCain said Friday that only “contracting a fatal disease” will cause him to drop out of the presidential race before the primaries begin….


“We’ll win the same way we almost win in 2000,” McCain said.

These statements just exude confidence, don’t they?

He downplayed reports of his campaign’s inner turmoils, saying the real problems were in profligate spending — not in lagging fund-raising. Still, he acknowledged that some of his positions have hurt his standing inside the GOP.

There’s nothing quite like damage control. I think I called it the last time I checked the pulse of the McCain campaign: Time for John McCain To Cut and Run.

  1. I read somewhere his communications staff is resigning soon. He’s fading fast.

  2. McCain already didn’t have much of a chance. Now his chance is completely dead. Flatlined. Too late to resuscitate it. He should get out now so we can stop looking at him and focus more on better candidates. Giuliani needs to beat it too. We need a REAL conservative to run. Sadly, the ones running that are most coservative and can be trusted the most are not out in the front. It would make my day to see a real conservative get Giuliani to go away. Anyway, GO BROWNBACK.

  3. Keep up the good work. Your man Sam is holding steady @
    1% to 3% in the polls. (That 3% usually comes when one of the leaders is taken out of the poll.)
    In other words, why don’t you Johnny-come-lately, bead-rattling Catholic converts just write in The Pope? He’ll probably do as well.

  4. Wouldn’t Rinosim be considered a disease just like Alzheimers, Schizophrenia, and Dissociative Identity Disorder? John McCain certainly exhibits all of the symptoms.

  5. No, because people stopped considering political opinions mental diseases a hundred hears ago. Unfortunately, some things, like the South, just never change.

  6. I live in the “South” (Alabama to be more exact)–some of us aren’t idiots. They (exceptions) tend to be the musicians in my age group. There’s just enough rednecks, racists (on all sides), and other “nutjobs” for the rest of the world to see us as such.
