St. McCain to the Gallows?

Looks like the Pander Bear Express has taken another detour - should we be concerned again for his well-being?
John McCain's campaign manager and chief strategist resigned Tuesday in a major staff shake-up for the struggling Republican presidential candidate who is all but broke and trails in opinion polls.

In statements, Terry Nelson, a veteran of President Bush's successful 2004 re-election effort, said he resigned as campaign manager effective immediately and John Weaver said he stepped down from his post of chief strategist.

But other officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid discussing private conversations, said Nelson was fired. Several people close to Nelson disputed that characterization.

This outta be good. In preparation for the McCain Campaign Death Watch, you'll need the following ingredients - courtesy of the Food Network's Rachael Ray (yeah, yeah)
Hot N Sweet Kettle Corn

1/2 cup unpopped corn kernels
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon chipotle powder
1 teaspoon salt
Place popcorn, sugar, oil, chipotle and salt in a large kettle or pot with a tight fitting lid over medium heat. When corn begins to pop, shake the pot constantly. When popping slows, remove from heat and transfer popped kettle corn to a bowl.

To keep the kettle corn sweet, omit the chipotle powder and adjust sugar to 1/3 cup.
