Poll question: McCain is AWOL, here's why:
He has made a HUGE mistake, misstatement, error, stepped in shit, each and every day. For at least the last 3 weeks. Frankly, if one tried, no person could make so many fucked up mistakes with such consistency and regularity that some suggested that they rename his campaign the METAMUCIL TRAIN of ERRORS.

Compare and contrast his appearances, his humor, his ability to deal with (I won't say stress, because he has always been a nutcase) issues in 1999 and 2000, with his behavior over the last three months, especially the last three weeks. His degeneration is not just obvious, but painful. Secretly, quietly, and without much MSM notice, he began taking weekends off. Now, he is expanding that to Wednesdays. There is a reason for that, and it should scare the living daylights out of every GOPer in this country.

The sad truth is that John was wrong before, but he is losing it where it counts - in his brain.

Here's the question(s)
Is he losing it, and if so, will he withdraw, or with the NEOCON corpserate media keep it hidden and try to pass him off as sane and healthy?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

3. Opted for the 'withdrawn' option
McCain has obviously lost his marbles.

4. I will be surprised if he is still the GOP nominee after the convention
I can't imagine McCain going head to head with Obama in a debate let alone on the campaign trail. Perhaps some health issue will force him to conveniently step down from the nomination? Maybe not, but I have to imagine that the GOP is freaking over the blatant ineptitude of their nominee.

6. I am seriously worried about his stability

and if it gets worse yet I don't see how they can NOT take him out. I don't see him withdrawing on his own. I don't see him admitting to himself he's lost his marbles.

I don't see that the other side has anybody better, and I believe it was their intention for him to take the fall, but I don't think they'll have any choice. And I can't help but believe Cheeny has a trick or two left ... that man is evil.
