I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I ain't seeing it. DC insider, big mouth (which always opens at the wrong time), perennial presidential primary loser, rep of a small state that's not in play.

I don't suppose he'll really hurt much, but I don't see how he helps attract independents or GOPers thinking of jumping from the Good Ship Shit.

I'll go on record with what I've been suspecting for about a month now (and now think is way more likely than not): Gerbil Jaw McCain, the original Maverick Jackass will win in November and become the US's forty-whatever number we're up to now President.

I've never hoped more that I'm wrong, but that's what I think.

Awe come on. Don't you think Joe's been Biden his time long enough?

That was, of course, the other pun I considered using as the title of this post.

Any others?

I think it's a great pick. Mr. Furious has a post of all the punditry's take on him as a pick.

But I like him because he's articulate enough to not be overshadowed by Obama, he can throw punches while Obama takes the high road and...he's not Hillary.

Plus, he raised his kids virtually by himself while being a Senator and commuting every day (which he still does) and his son is about to ship to Iraq.

Sebelius doesn't have the chops to even throw the "pick which of the 7 kitchen tables to eat at" quip. I remember her S.O.S. response back in January and it was less than inspired.

I'm with Smitty on this one.

You may still be right about McCain winning the election, especially if the "we want Hillary" crowd carries through on their threat that if she's not on the ticket they won't for Obama. It's as if these people think that by voting for someone who doesn't share their political views out of spite won't affect them one bit. "If we can't have Hillary then to hell with the country," seems to be their attitude. If I were a Democrat, I'd be royally pissed off at these people.

In January I said McCain would win the election. I continue to stand by the viewpoint.

Here's hoping Obama is the Delgado of politics, Mike.

Well I had the farm riding on Snoop Dog being the running mate. Boy some days it doesn't pay to get out of bed.

The fact that the polls have it at even is a major bummer. I am starting to think McCain could just run a 10 second spot where he says, " I'm the one who's not black."

The women in this country who are not worried are not paying attention.

Yeah, I'm a little surprised at this whole angle too. Feminists think they'd be better off with McCain than with Obama???

Here's hoping BO was watching the game from K.C. last night.

I am starting to think McCain could just run a 10 second spot where he says, " I'm the one who's not black."

He hasn't done this yet? I guess he's waiting til after the convention; maybe they want to have Powell give a speech and they're afraid of pissing him off first.

Rickey would love to think that the Hillary crazies would wake up and realize what McCain's position on abortion is, cause if they don't, we're all screwed.

Let's just say tomorrow, the race started looking like a blowout, with either candidate winning and all the Democrats and all the Republicans were generally in line with their respective candidates. If this happened, the news networks would lose billions in election year ad revenue because everyone would stop watching the news again.

It is in the media’s best interest to pump up the controversies, the infighting, and keep reporting that it is a close race. Without those things, everyone goes home.

Take this crap with a grain of salt. So McCain found one dumbass who say she is a Hillary Democrat going for McCain. Big deal, I am sure Obama could find Huckabee delegate or two going for Obama.

Bottom line, the numbers don’t spell out impending doom within their own party’s for either McCain or Obama.
