Republicans Against McCain
The Republican establishment is going ape-shit over the possibility of John McCain getting the nomination. Limbaugh has been railing against him non-stop and Ann Coulter has threatened to campaign for Hillary if he gets the nomination (and thereby getting herself in the news again). Today the Washington Post published a piece quoting several Republican senators saying in so many words that he's too crazy to be President. They accuse him of having a hair-trigger temper and getting angry and passionate about things. The increasingly desperate Mittens for President campaign has posted an article accusing McCain of saying "Fuck you" to Senator John Cornyn of Texas over immigration legislation.
In my book, anybody who says fuck you to John Cornyn can't be all bad.
So, here's the Republican establishment's plan for dealing with McCain. Treat him as a raving maniac, mentally wounded from five years captivity in Viet Nam and unfit to be President. They would rather loose control of the White House than loose control of the party.
It's so much fun watching the Republican meltdown.
