Closing Up Shop

Taking another step towards total irrelevancy, John McCain has abandoned Michigan.
McCain will go off TV in Michigan, stop dropping mail there and send most of his staff to more competitive states, including Wisconsin, Ohio and Florida.

I say good. I hated having to explain to my kids how a "war hero" like McCain could outright lie in his ads and still claim to be an honorable person. The McCain campaign is getting ready to implode, what with him terminating interviews, as well as yelling at reporters, but to give up a state like Michigan, well, he might as well throw in the towel.
There is talk that McCain might be able to take Michigan,having beat George Bush there in the primaries in 2000, but I think he won that election because some people were voting against Bush rather than for McCain. And while people here might not be too fond of Gov. Granholm, they disdain George Bush more. To , the election's over, and Obama won!

I tend to be a negatorian-type worrier, but you know, I kind of think things ARE starting to implode for McCain. This Michigan pull-out is a good sign. I like it that the American people didn't tend to buy his "I'm suspending my campaign" crap... his presence in D.C. made virtually no difference in Congress getting to an agreement on the bailout... his VP running mate hasn't helped him as much as some people think she has, and even despite her non-implosion in tonight's debate, she may STILL be more of a liability than a help... he can't claim to have been in favor of anything but deregulation leading up to the Wall Street crisis, and now that he voted for the bailout he can't run around saying he is anti-pork because the bailout is full of it... People are starting to get more worried about what it would be like with McCain in the White House than it would be like with Obama. Let the bad poll numbers keep on coming for McCain, please.

When "Keating Five" McCain's campaign says "country first" I have to wonder which country they are talking about. China? Saudi Arabia? McCain's policies show absolutely no concern whatsoever about the USA.
