Cueil, as party leader, McCain has been running a horrible campaign and running that party into the ground.
He's lost control of his running mate as she degrades him, by constantly undermining his decisions, his opponent, by claiming ties to terrorists, and the voters, by her claims of pro-American and anti-American places.
He refuses to denounce the behavior of the people who use racists and inflammatory images and rhetoric.
He has proven in the primaries and the general election, that he is willing to say different things at different times in order to get elected to a degree far beyond any other modern politician.
McCain changes his strategy every week, flailing aimlessly, lost in his way.
He appears to be an angry, bitter man who refuses to show respect to anyone who disagrees with him.
Just because he claims to disagree with everyone doesn't make him a potentially effective president; especially, since in reality votes squarely in line with Republicans.
This is what has made me think less and less of McCain as the weeks go by. I loved the guy before the entire election cycle, and he is still one of the most honest guys in Washington.
He really did have the chance to be a "new" Republican, but he was mired in the swamp that is the current Republican party. I guess he forgot to put "Country First."
We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls. The only thing that really worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke
It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...." Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S.
