1. Who knows how the more troops in Iraq thing will look two years from now
At least he's on record as wanting that at this point, but will Iraq still be the big topic in 08? Probably, but I'm not sure.

As for overturning roe, well, that'll bring the fundies out like gay marriage never could.

I don't know. I'm kinda thinking he might be a formidible foe in 08. He and rudy g. I'm talking, of course, not who'd be better for the nation, but about getting voters to the polls in 08. Roe is a hot-button issue for the right, and we can't ignore that.

Who would we put up against a mccain/guliani(sp?) ticket?

Just wondering out loud about the possibiities...

2. McCain is
old, tired and delusional. The glamor is gone. I hope the Repubs nominate him.

4. I just convinced my friend that McCain is not as moderate as he seems...
I sent her a few articles and she said that she would definitely not vote for him if nominated in 08, and she used to be a BIG fan of McCain. Now she's throwing her support behind Obama and is hoping Barbara Boxer will run.

I feel like I should get frequent flyer miles every time I make a conversion like that

5. The thing that really pisses me off about McCain is the "more troops" thing
he is going around saying that we will not win unless we get more troops, that the troop levels are not high enough, blah blah.

And conservatives are kissing his ass and fawning all over him. They are comparing him to Barry fucking Goldwater.

He is a hero for having the guts to say this, because it just "needs to be said".


Uh, hello, conservative assholes? We said this for years, and what did we get? Respect? Shit no! We were called traitors!

7. McCain's straight shootin election night
1:36 a.m. McCain appears on CNN, broadcasting live from his Arizona office. He's got American flags on either side of him and you can almost see his boner straining against his pants. His smile is unseemly. He's talking about Republican losses and trying to look sullen, but he's not fooling anyone. He's like the bachelor who starts trying to fuck the widow before the funeral convoy even reaches the cemetery. (An election night diary by Matt Taibbi)
