Note to Senator McCain

To: Senator McCain
From: a GOP voter

I don't care how long you spent shackled in a cell in a Vietnamese prison camp. You have now burned up every bit of goodwill your wartime sacrifices might have engendered, and are now operating on a "GOP-karma" deficit.

If this nation should ever be so unfortunate as to have you on the presidential ticket, I will almost certainly vote against you.

No one who spends as much time aggrandizing himself and preening for the media at the expense of the party and principles which got him into office as you do deserves the support of the party or the people who adhere to those principles. No one who so obviously craves attention and acclaim deserves either.

Do your party and its voters a favor, and retire from public life.

Update: Patterico is on the same track. Ace, too.

We must have that sibling-psychic-link thing going on. I was thinking, just TODAY, how much McCain sucks. Why doesn't he just come out and admit that he wants someone to make a movie-of-the-week about his life? Why doesn't McCain just step up and say that he wants to be Mr. Popular? Who cares if every political idea he's had has sucked wind. Hard. I am so tired of his tenure as the media's darling. The media's favorite Republican. He either has no clue that he's a stooge for the dems or he does not care. Which is worse? As Bugs Bunny would say, "what a maroon!"

I guess McCain can count on losing a lot of votes. I figure if I don't vote for him that's one vote he loses, if I hold my nose and vote for his opponent that's another vote, so in fact we all have two votes. Send him back to the desert and hope the good people of Az. have the sense to get rid of him also.

No we are stuck with the Prima Donna, there are too many our my fellow Arizonians that think he can do no wrong. It is because of his magnanimous desire to appeal to those on both sides of the fence. His ability to pander to all and statisfy none.
