Conversatives are pretty upset with John McCain and the campaign he has run including the choice of Sarah Palin. Let’s look at today’s media reports.
Here’s what Conservative, NeoCon media guru Bill Kristol says about McCain in a New York Times piece today:
It’s time for John McCain to fire his campaign. He has nothing to lose. His campaign is totally overmatched by Obama’s. The Obama team is well organized, flush with resources, and the candidate and the campaign are in sync. The McCain campaign, once merely problematic, is now close to being out-and-out dysfunctional. Its combination of strategic incoherence and operational incompetence has become toxic. If the race continues over the next three weeks to be a conventional one, McCain is doomed.
He may be anyway.
Here’s what Conservative, NeoCon media guru Christopher Hitchens says about the McCain-Palin campaign:
With McCain, the “experience” is subject to sharply diminishing returns, as is the rest of him, and with Palin the very word itself is a sick joke. One only wishes that the election could be over now and a proper and dignified verdict rendered, so as to spare democracy and civility the degradation to which they look like being subjected in the remaining days of a low, dishonest campaign.
RedState co-founder Joshua Trevino writes on his blog that:
…he can’t bring himself to vote for the Republican ticket. In the end, I couldn’t do it. My California ballot arrived in the mail today, and I opened it fully intending to vote for John McCain….Do I believe in John McCain? Not as much as I used to. Do I believe in Sarah Palin? Despite my early enthusiasm for her, now not at all. Do I believe in the national Republican Party? Not in the slightest — even though I see no meaningful alternative to it.
As you might imagine, John McCain doesn’t see it this way. But, then again, there’s a lot of things he’s not been able to see during this campaign.
Enough! Obama-Biden in 2008!! Democrat Dave
