Raising the White Flag of Surrender

McCain flees Michigan:

John McCain is pulling out of Michigan, according to two Republicans, a stunning move a month away from Election Day that indicates the difficulty Republicans are having in finding blue states to put in play.

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. Wisconsin went for Kerry in 2004, Ohio and Florida for Bush.
What? No Mission Accomplished speech?

And here I was thinking that John McCain knew how to win wars. Did I mention that McCain knows how to win wars? Because John McCain knows how to win wars. That's what I hear anyway. John McCain knows how to win wars. And he knows how to win wars in a mavericky way. Because he's a maverick. Just like his running mate is a maverick. Sarah Palin's a maverick just like John McCain's a maverick. So many mavericks on the McCain-Palin ticket who all know how to win wars. And lower taxes. Did you know that mavericks John McCain and Sarah Palin both know how to win wars and lower taxes? It's true. They're maverick war-winning tax-lowerers. And they love America.**

I just realized: I don't **want** a maverick as a President. I want someone who's sensible, methodical, and level-headed.

(Hm! Would that make a good political ad for Obama?)

GG: I couldn't agree more. By McCain's definition, George W Bush is a maverick. Been there. Done that.
