Republican pundits stage fits of apoplexy as McCain fails to mask the total intellectual bankruptcy and corruption of their party

    Here's a video of the Republican wharf rats abandoning McCain's ship while pontificating loudly. Notable among them is Bill Kristol who has slammed McCain this week for doing exactly what Kristol suggested he do last week:



    Meanwhile others in the Republican commentariat, led by Jonah Goldberg, last week blamed the Dow plunge on expectation that Obama will likely win the presidency. They have not, however, blamed Obama for today's skyrocketing rally:

    I find it particularly hilarious when Jonah Goldberg suggests that Obama (or anyone) stop hanging around with shifty characters.

    I mean, what's he going to do, stop talking to his mom?

    You pitch your horse in with people like Karl Rove and Rick Davis you kinda have to sell your soul so to speak

    These are the same guys who made a whispering campaign that McCain had a black baby in South Carolina when he ran again Bush
    ...What did he EXPECT???

    Isn't watching the Republican train derail too quickly from the train tracks fun?

    We keep hearing about McCain's experience. If he's so experienced why is his campaign such a mess? This isn't his first run for the presidency either. If he can't run a campaign, why should we think he can run a country?

    No worries. Sarah Palin can take up the slack. She has plenty of experience as a lying, unethical executive.

    Did y'all see that none other than the lefty-turned-neocon Christopher Hitchens endorsed Mr. Barack HUSSEIN Obama today?

    Not that I am defending the absolutely pathetic campaign McCain has run, candidates have little to do with the running of their campaigns. The candidate is more like a king/queen hybrid chess piece, some other person/committee of people pushes them around.

    But the way these mofos have been pushing McCain he should have fired them months ago.

    Please, he's a maverick! He can't be a chess piece and a maverick too!

    I think your last sentence is right on the mark. Making good personnel choices is an important part of leadership. If Sarah Palin is any indication of the caliber of his team, then there's little wonder it has been so weak.

    As the old saying goes: the fish rots from the head.

    Why do anti-Obamists like to point out his middle name? Because it is the same as Saddam's last name?

    Ohhhh, John McCain and John Wilkes Booth share a name...McCain must be a crazed assassin.

    If you don't like Obama, base it on his policies and politics and not on his name or race.

    Don't worry, it was Jesus himself, who asked McCain to run for president while they shared a six-pack together.

    Jesus may be available this evening, but Mr. Bush's schedule is already full for tonight.

    If Mental Gymnastics was an actual sport, right-wing pundits would have the gold medal! Their floor routine about how McCain's standings in the polls has absolutely nothing to do with the pathetic job Bush, McCain and republican congress (1995-2006) have done running the country rates a difficulty level of 9 at least!

    MikeOnMain -- you're so on point w/ your remark!

    MunchingZombie -- McCain has EVERYTHING to do w/ running his campaign - to think otherwise is naive . . . McCain approves or disapproves the principal concepts and plans of action he executes. To think otherwise is like saying Bush isn't the one who approved all the dreadful decisions which brought this country down!

    I don't know who this Jonah Goldberg is but honestly how can anyone with any knowledge of economics or finance make such ludricous statements with a straight face?

    Ignoring the fact that McCain was neck in neck in the polls with Obama when things started unravelling in September, the sub-prime mortgage mess has been on people's radar screens as a potential danger for the world's financial system for years (I was reading the Economist magazines warnings about the potential dangers of the housing bubble and the sub-prime mortgages in 2006).

    The housing bubble developed when a Republican president was in the White House and Republicans had a 50-50 split in the Senate. To blame Obama simply does not hold much creedence (not to mention the fact that Europe's and Asias banks also got caught up in the mess as well).
