In No-You're-A-Doodyhead News

NPR: Cunningham Renounces McCain After "Hussein" Flap which was after McCain renounced Cunningham for his warm up the crowd rhetoric that was more like cheap shot rhetoric.

McCain also recently tried to retract a statement that his campaign would succeed or fail based on Iraq. And then he realized that it was a really stupid thing to say so he publicly said he no longer wants that statement applied to him.

Which is fine, the more he looks like a confused and jowly deer in the headlights, the better. I'm starting to think McCain is getting his chance now because his party has made such a colossal mess of things on every front that he's got little chance of winning or repairing the damage they've done.

Why would I not vote for John McCain? There are plenty of reasons but I can distill it down to just a couple. One, he is strongly pro-life and would seek to overturn Roe v. Wade. Two, he's pandered to just about every special interest group he possibly can and owes more favors than a hooker with a gambling problem. Three, he's old and looks it. His person is not presidential, its more crony-ential.

Which isn't to say that I don't have some modicum of respect for the man. He is, after all is said and done, a war hero and a POW and I will never deny him that respect. But it doesn't mean I want his crazy ass making decisions in how to run the country.
