I feel sorry for John McCain.
He had a decent image, and a decent message, in his post-Keating Five Senate career, and when he ran against Bush in 2000.
And then, in a desperate last-chance reach for power, he became a whore.
He kissed the ring of the religious right.
Then he kissed the ass and failed policies of George W. Bush the Idiot.
And now he kisses his reputation and good character goodbye with a mean, issue-free, directionless, messageless and shallow candidacy.
John McCain, evidently being advised by monkeys, has become a sad, sad man, and a terrible candidate. Perhaps the worst major party candidate for president since Walter Mondale.
The GOP still has time to right this wrong, and nominate a credible and serious candidate for president. Give us Newt. Give us Mitt. Give us Ron Paul. Hell give us Bobby Jindal.
McCain will be routed, and deep down you all know it. He's untrusted by the Republicans, hated by Independents, and not even considered by Democrats.
Come on GOP - make this a race. Give us the "New GOP" - NOW. Don't wait until 2012, or 2016, or 2020, or 2024. Feed on the anger toward your own party. Make the housing crash bailouts and government spending YOUR issue. Run against your own incompetent president. And throw McCain under the bus. Now.
It's not too late.
John McCain - for the good of your lost party, step aside. "Health reasons" is a good one. Let a viable candidate go against Obama. Or sadly continue on, but lose with honor.
Life is too short to be an ass. Life is too short to be a Rove-Republican. Life is too short to run the classless, mean-spirited, dishonest and desperate campaign you're running.
Life is too short to be the "new" John McCain. A desperate and sad political whore, about to meet his fate as America's Biggest Loser.

A HousingPANIC message for John McCain: You're going to lose. Bad. Go down with honor, or better yet, step aside.
