GOP Whisper Campaign Against St. McCain

Wednesday, June 27, 2007

Ah, rumor mills - gotta luv 'em sometimes.

At a campaign stop in South Carolina, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was asked about reports that he may be dropping out.

"There are rumors that you may be thinking about dropping out of the campaign. Exaggerated?" a reporter asked.

"I think they have been smoking something that's not legal in the state of South Carolina," McCain replied. "I have never contemplated such a thing. I mean it has never crossed my mind."

Rumors like that can't be coming from Democratic circles. It's obvious that the rats are starting to jump ship from the U.S.S. George, but there's St. McCain, gripping the anchor of W's ship tighter than the noose that'll soon be hanging around Chemical Ali's head.

Of course, I'm of the mindset that these verbal protestations from the likes of Lugar and Voinovich are nothing more than public tantrums. I'll believe them to be principled after they start voting to end the bloodshed in Iraq. So far, it's been all talk/no action from the Hill.

Then again, at least they bother to vote.
The six senators seeking the White House can talk the talk. Voting the vote is not so easy.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has skipped roughly half his Senate votes while campaigning for president.

Dentists drill teeth. Minutemen hunt humans. Politicians are supposed to vote. We don't elect them to be campaigners. Chalk it up to being yet another infection on the system that would be better served with an amputation rather than antibiotics.
