The Phantom City

Notes from our travels across a mysterious world.

I’m assuming this is about done

Way back when, I voted for John McCain as a write-in in a state that didn’t support write-in votes for President (as near as I could tell), largely as a protest as to the Republican selection and primary political campaign. That was then. Now I’m just wondering when the McCain campaign is going to be closing up and heading home.

It’s actually kind of sad, like when Bob Dole ran in 1996. No matter what my disagreements with their platforms, both men deserved better than being thrown under the bus by their party. (Of course, with McCain, that was in the 2000 primaries. Now he’s just doing it to himself.)

Have fun, Republican Party, as you trample off to anoint the next chosen candidate: ____ ________. I don’t think it’s going to work that well; the Party-approved talent base seems kind of thin this year. But, hey, you chose President George W. Bush in 2000, and that worked out well, didn’t it?

  1. This might very well be the last election that’s run by the bigwigs of both parties. People are coming to be finally sick and tired of the shell game that the RepubliCrats have been playing all these years, and with the growing use of the Internet as a means of getting info, the party honchos can’t manipulate things with the regular media anymore like they used to.

    Actually wouldn’t surprise me if a really viable third party materialized over the next year or so. Or better yet, we start looking at individuals and not parties at all.
