Well, it seems that after satisfying debts, John McCain’s presidential campaign is down to $250,000 on hand. That’s about like you or I being down to whatever change is in our car’s ashtray.
I’ve never liked John McCain. I thought his campaign finance reform legislation was poorly thought out, and I think his position on illegal immigration is abysmally stupid. Moreover, he’s a stalwart status quo supporter on Iraq (and I go back and forth on what I think the best answer in Iraq is, but I know for damned sure it isn’t “give it time”). Finally, I find him petulant and needy as a campaigner, and I have no reason to believe he’d be any different as a chief executive.
Senator McCain, we thank you for your service, but you are not going to be President of the United States. Everyone knows it but you. Please commence fading from public view at once. Who knows? If you give it a year or two, maybe you can pull off that “elder statesman” crap.
