McCain Concedes to Presumptive Democratic Nominee

Wow. That was easy.

John McCain said Monday that to win the White House he must convince a war-weary country that U.S. policy in Iraq is succeeding. If he can't, "then I lose. I lose," the Republican said.

He quickly backed off that remark.
Speaking of presumptive nominees, have you Started a Fight today?


  1. McCain mistakingly thinks that by being gracious to his opponents he will avoid attacks upon himself. I don't think he has any idea how vicious his opponents and the media are going to be once the Democrats choose their own nominee.

  2. You're missing the point here, Ken.

    McCain is tying himself to Bush's Iraq Policy.

    He's toast.

    McCains stand on the war, especially the success of the serge is the issue that made him the Republican nominee. that and the idiot Mike Huckabee splitting the conservative vote with Romney. If he distances himself from the war he will even further alienate the conservative base. His only chance is to throw as much red meat to conservatives as possible otherwise as you said he is toast.

    obtw speaking of red meat I,m surprised you haven't visited my blog and commented on my global warming post.

  4. Ken,

    For jeebus sake, do you wake up every morning and say to yourself, "you know what, I'm going miss the point of everything today"?

    Of course it won him the nomination. And the irony of that, and the reason it made me happy enough to write a post about it, is that that will cost him the general election. Thus the words "concedes to Dem nominee." I mean if you disagree, please do so, but missing the point is just wasting your time and mine. I can't keep spelling this stuff out for you, man!

    And no, I didn't see your global warming post. Let me guess, everything is a-ok and it's just a socialist agenda schemed up by that evil ne'r-do-well Al Gore, right? You knee-jerk conservative ideologues are so predictable. And so, so wrong.

    I'll stop by and check it out though, since you asked.
