Give It Up, Johnny Boy

Seriously, does John McCain really want the Republican nomination? His recent attempt to derail his own "Straight Talk Express" came when he used the term tar baby in a response to a question on a campaign stop in Iowa today.
"For me to stand here and … say I'm going to declare divorces invalid because of someone who feels they weren't treated fairly in court, we are getting into a tar baby of enormous proportions and I don't know how you get out of that."

Mitt Romney also used the term to describe Boston's big dig project, leading one to believe that, well, all Republicans are racists (and ones of the early twentieth century variety to boot).
McCain also stumbled on a question on whether or not he supported federally subsidized condoms to Africa to prevent the spread of HIV.
McCain has said he won't formally announce his candidacy until April. At the rate he's going, by then he won't even be a contender.

I think McCain's a done deal.

That picture is great! McCain is certainly shooting himself in the foot a lot these days. He'll be dead so to speak by the time 2008 rolls around. There is no way he'll get the nomination.

he has lost all credibility

That's not the only problem he's got. He also seems to be unable to articulate a position without consulting his campaign manager. As you pointed out over at Blognonymous, he's going to torpedo this nomination for himself opening the door to...AAAUUUGGG!
