President McCain

I think we're approaching that point in the campaign... the point at which it's time to deal with the increasingly real likelihood of a McCain victory in November.

When was the last time the general populace in the U.S. actually impressed you with its wisdom?

When a significant chunk of the electorate pledges to vote for the ticket containing a woman, even one who is the polar opposite (on every meaningful issue) of their choice in the primaries, it's "President McCain."

When a significant chunk of the electorate equates banning assault weapons in crime-ridden metropolitan areas with Uncle Sam showing up at their bucolic homestead to effect a mandatory surrender of their gran'pappy's ol' shotgun, it's "President McCain."

When a significant chunk of the electorate feels that someone who married into a $100 million fortune, and spent the last 3 decades in D.C. is somehow the candidate "most like me" (or however those asinine poll questions are phrased), it's "President McCain."

When a significant chunk of the electorate deem even the most effective domestic programs to be "wasteful spending" while somehow turning a blind eye to hundreds of billions of dollars flushed down the proverbial toilet in Iraq, it's "President McCain."

You know this list could go on and on and on. I didn't even mention "abortion," "experience," "drilling," or "commander-in-chief" among many other loaded terms. I'm just sayin', people... get yourselves prepared for the worst.
