McCain could pull out of race by autumn: Presidential hopeful drops campaign staff as Republican consultants predict he'll be gone by September.

THE former presidential front-runner, John McCain, may drop out of the 2008 race by September if his fundraising dries up and his poll ratings continue to drop, according to Republican insiders. Complete Story:


"Speculation" is often akin to "wishful thinking."

McCain reminds your Mittiot of a non-racist John C. Calhoun: "Defiant to the point of self-destruction." There is no doubt that McCain is a force in the Senate and he might consider pulling out under the guise of being "too much of a visionary to win the nomination." Which may be true - the flip side, of course, is an ever dwindling number are being drawn to his vision. Calhoun's reason for returning to the Senate after losing his Presidential bid was a bit more ominous than trying to get "soft money out of politics" or an illegal immigration bill that would tackle both "those coming in and those already here" (as stated, Secure the Border FIRST) but none-the-less, legislative windmills abound and McCain has obtained a pretty formidable joust within the American Senate.

Note the "wishful thinking" reference above. "Premature articulation" of the Administration's intent to close Gitmo had all the Left in an orgasmic tizzy. NICE GOING, LEFTY MEDIA - NO FARE TEASING! Now the talk has turned to "this administration refuses to compromise, to back down, it just digs its heels in . . . look at Iraq, look at Gonzales. . ." Hmmmm. Look at immigration, look at No-Child Left Behind, look at Social Security reform, look at Rumsfeld. The Administration (Bush, Cheney) know enough when to fish and when to cut bait. Just because the Left is demanding to cut the bait (or "cut and run") doesn't mean the the Administration is wrong - no matter how loud it's screamed from the top of the Hollywood Hills. Romney is right (get used to hearing that) Guantanamo should be doubled - not closed - the alternative to taking these enemy combatants off the field of the battle is to plant them 6 foot under it - we're not bringing them to the US - where in the hell would we house them? Hollywood? How 'bout Seattle?

The Truth About Guantanamo Proposals to treat detainees as criminal defendants make a mockery of international humanitarian law. Full article:
