Fork Him

Chris Cillizza reports in The Fix: “In a widely expected move, Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) press department resigned en masse today.”

Did you get that? His entire press department resigned.

That means there’s no one to, say, field questions (and deliver spin) about what services Stevens, Reed, Curcio & Potholm are providing to him, for instance, should any enterprising reporter want to get all over that story.

His erstwhile communications director’s replacement is rumored to be his current New Hampshire press maven, Jill Hazelbaker, who was exposed as a sockpuppeteer and a liar while working as Republican Tom Kean, Jr’s. press secretary, using fake identities not only to defend the candidate for whom she worked but her own proficiency as his employee—and then repeatedly lying about doing it, even when she’d been totally busted.

McCain’s campaign just keeps getting awesomer and awesomer.

In fact, that campaign has been so HOTT for so long, that I’m pretty sure it’s time to stick a fork in that turkey. Cuz it’s done.

    Love the link to BlueJersey (though you have to go to a second link to get to it). That was such a fun story.

    He’s toast. He is for the war, and he is clearly in the minority. He just supports Bush too much, while his country, our country, the good old USA is really tired of W and company.

    At this pace his campaign will soon be so hot it will no longer be correct to describe it as anything but radioactive.

    I was thinking more like meltdown…… 😉

  6. Oh, Liss, I am so hoping you’re right. This freakshow of a man cannot be President. He’d be even more embarrassing than Bush, and that takes some doing.

    Yeah. The thing about McCain is that he wouldn’t be as consistently embarrassing as Bush, because he can generally string a couple of sentences together, unlike the current moron-in-chief. But McCain’s got no self-censoring mechanism, so his faux pas are unbelievably cringeworthy, akin to Prince Philip and his regular outbursts of “racial insensitivity,” ahem.

    Actually, that Prince Phillip analogy is quite apt. I hadn’t thought about that before. There have been bills he’s championed that truly are worthy and for which I have admired his efforts.

    Then, as you say, he opens his yap while aggravated, and ………

  9. On that subject, I’ll recommend this cartoon.

    Damn, Liss, that picture is way freaky. I’m beginning to believe that Warren Ellis was right when he said that McCain looks “like a very old Muppet left in a bin until mushrooms grew inside him”.

    Buh-bye, angry ‘shroom Muppet. 🙂

  11. The Warren Ellis quote made me laugh to tears. But I like mushrooms, can we make it “toadstools” instead?

    Indeed. Fork him. All four tines.

    As a Williston-Elko Blue Devil, I can put a blue pitchfork into McCain’s presidential bid, because the Arizona Senator is toast. He’s a goner.

    Bye-bye McCain. 😀
