    If McCain loses his seat, he only has himself to blame. That said, never count McCain out.

    CIAO Mccain. . . hes no maverick. . . that was just a plow to not look so far right. . . neither is his former running mate. . .if you were a maverick, you would question your own partys policies. . .

    He sure showed everyone how to lose the Presidency. Don't show up, and then, without researching the matter, pick an ignorant media hound who loves to make enemies as your running mate.

    He ran about the WORST campaign he could have, mostly because he wanted to court the conservative fringe. As if they would ever love him for that!!!!

    The guy is finished, whether or not he gets another term. He has a lot of appealing qualities, but sound judgment doesn't appear to be one of them.

    One of the poorest losers around.

    This guy really screwed himself, was a moderate until the party turned on him, now trying to adjust to the right wing nut cases.

    I am No fan of John McCain
    a man who said that when the chief Generals in the armed services came to him and said it was time to get rid of DADT he'd back its repeal
    ..... well they Did and He Didn't

    a man who Co-wrote McCain Feingold campaign finance reform and then back tracked and spoke against his own reforms

    a man who allowed the republican politbureau to come into his campaign and tell him to place Sara Palin so close to real political power

    .... But I am SURE the one the republicans would rather have is TEN times worse

    Yep. Be careful what you wish for. For all his sheer lunacy, McCain could be a paragon of sanity compared to what he might get replaced with.

    I absolutely agree with McGay on this... the "gentleman" (Hayworth)
    from Arizona who wants to replace McCain is a rabid right winger, so I understand. If you want partisan gridlock to continue... and worsen, head down this path.


    The good old republicans like to point that democrats will have a tough time this fall... I tend to think incumbents will, this is just one example.

    I figured that they no longer thought he was right-wing enough...

    Poor guy. Even after all his flip flopping to make them happy, his party still hates him. "What do you want me to do? Oh, okay. I hate gays and abortion now!" "Oh what's that? Okay, bomb everyone who isn't us!" "Drill baby, drill!!!" He isn't even remotely the man he was prior to 2000 and he's still not good enough for them.

    "Earlier this week, popular Fox News television and radio host Glenn Beck — who once said McCain “would've been worse for the country than Barack Obama” — offered his unvarnished take on the Arizona senator during a radio interview with Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.)"

    is the Republican party becoming a parody of itself ?
    I've known and still know republicans who were of course all about low taxes, free enterprise, non interference of the State etc. but they were also rather affable, able to converse with you , stating their arguments without animosity.
    But it's not what we see anymore or at least not what is being put on the front line.
    Is it a reaction to society that's breaking away from their way of life and mentality ?
    Is it an effect of 9/11 ?

    or was i just lucky,,lol.

    Poor McCain, first he lost his airplane, then, his mind, then, his erection, and now his party.

    Ya that sucks for him but like you guys said, he got eaten by his own. Now Arizona is getting ready for a real wacko(Hayworth) to take his place.

    Only to those who don't worship at the right-wing altar of bigotry & hatred. For the rest of the country, the Republicans are the saviors who will deliver us from that Black, socialist, non-American citizen Barack Obama. This November's elections will be a blood-bath, and we gays will be among those shedding it.
