The McCain Implosion is Nearly Complete

See John slowly collapse like a flan in a cupboard.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Have I ever mentioned that I don’t like John McCain?

I’m not sure if I have

Anyway, good riddance to bad rubbish, I say.

Fin.

  1. I was predicting a McCain flameout a year ago. Unfortunately, I only have blog proof from February.

    But it’s not like this is surprising or anything.

  2. Gee, I guess people are really upset over this Iraq War thing.

    Who woulda guessed?

  3. Unfortunately, I only have blog proof from February.

    I think that represents about 3/4 of my McCain posts going back to August of ’05. There’s almost a whole other year before that, too, that I didn’t include, lol.

    Seriously. I really don’t like John McCain. No, really.

    It could have happened to a nicer guy …alas it was McCain …gone, but soon forgotten…

    BTW: the Humpty analogy is so beautiful …

    Be careful what you wish for Giuliani/Thompson/Romney aren’t much better than McCain.

    Thanks for the hot tip. I’d never noticed that before.

  7. This will probably be Newt’s cue to deign to consider running.

  8. Thanks for the hot tip. I’d never noticed that before.

    T87 truly brings teh awesome didactic lessons to the party. Because being against McCain is being for Giuliani/Thompson/Romney. Thanks, t87!

    I guess *sarcastic* is just your default mode, huh?

    Well, if you think that a republican party that solidifies behind a single candidate early in the primaries is a good thing, the McCain’s absence is super. Just super.

  10. Those campaigns are not looking particularly strong, either.

    Sooooo, …

    what are you trying to say, Liss? 😉

    No, I generally reserve it for people who’ve earned it.

    I think any candidate that the Repugs are for is a bad thing, though I see the point that no competition in the primaries is a bad thing, but that is not the case here. There are plenty of stinkers left, and McCain no longer in the running is an even better thing than more assholes in the mix, so the Repugs can pick the more electable asshole.

    Oh Melissa,you sarcastic wench of my dreams….heehee.

    Anyone who would allow a bunch of political thugs to use his wife and kid as fodder to ruin his first run for Prez,and THEN hug all over the asshole who took the nomination deserves what he gets. I lost all respect for the guy after the 2000 debacle. If he can’t stand up to his own party how’s he gonna stand up to anything or anyone else?

    Buh,Bye,and don’t let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya,McCain. Bleh.

    This is totally worth it for no other reason that it allowed me to find the “goalposts” picture again. I really liked that one for some reason. (OK, two reasons: “You’re totally bald, McLame!” and “Skank sac!” 😆 )

    McCain’s campaign is in fizzle-out mode, huh? I figured that big action hero John McClane would give McCain at least a bit of a bump, due to pure name confusion as well as the whole Tough Guys Who Outrun Explosions Are Cool factor.

    but we’re missing sight of the more important question… with McCain bowing out, who’s gonna give Dubya all teh Mad Hugz from now on?

    I guess *sarcastic* is just your default mode, huh?

    Isn’t everyone’s? How confusing… you seem to be implying there might be some other mode one might employ…

    Well, if you think that a republican party that solidifies behind a single candidate early in the primaries is a good thing, the McCain’s absence is super. Just super.

    Since McCain has been considered the ‘heir apparent’ sometime around 2001 or 2002 or so (and damn, is that mantle ever threadbare at this point!), one could argue that his early exit hardly represents the sudden solidification of the political right behind one of his rivals. If anything, it shows just how much disarray they’re in right now.

    If one of McCain’s rivals had racked up so much support so early that he could claim to be the ‘giant-killer’ responsible, the concern would be a valid one. As things stand, it looks like the Republican field is thoroughly Balkanized. Perhaps they’ll use that famous party discipline to get things whipped into shape over the next year or so, but for the time being their prospects look even dimmer than before. My guess as to ‘why?’ is that even rich Republicans don’t want to throw money at a losing cause. Hence, major Republican candidates wind up with fundraising shortfalls. Never thought we’d see *that* happen.
