John McCain Doesn't Have A Snowball's Chance

John McCain Doesn't Have A Snowball's Chance

By Robert Paul Reyes

When there is mock-serious debate as to whether your opponent is the Messiah, you don`t have a snowball`s chance of winning the general election. That`s the untenable situation that John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, finds himself in.

John McCainAt the Republican convention, the head honchos should make John McCain the Grand Poobah of the local Rotary Club and select someone else to be their presidential nominee.

I don`t want to sound morbid, but I wouldn`t be surprised if some Republicans are praying that McCain will pass away before the Republican convention.

Times are tough not only for McCain, but for all Republicans. The Bush brand name is radioactive, Republicans are running away from Bush as if he had leprosy.

"Just how poisonous is President Bush for incumbent Republicans running for reelection? Well, one of them is running a TV ad touting his ties to the Senate`s most liberal member: Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Oregon Moderate Gordon Smith says the two senators worked closely together on increasing gas mileage for automobiles, touting his ability to work across party lines on a key issue in the heavily Democratic state. `Who said Gordon Smith helped lead the fight for better gas mileage and a cleaner environment? Barack Obama,` the ad`s narrator says, as the camera pans from a highlight of Smith`s name to Obama`s logo."

Quotation from


When a Republican senator is running on Obama`s coattails, instead of McCain`s or Bush -- you`d better not bet the rent money on McCain winning in November.

All the polls show Obama with a substantial lead; McCain`s only hope is that Obama will be revealed not as the Messiah, but as the Antichrist.

Or heavens forbid, Bush will launch an October surprise by attacking Iran, in the hopes that the public will vote for McCain, the candidate with the most foreign policy experience.

I don`t feel comfortable giving McCain advice, but maybe it will help if he balances his ticket by choosing a female Veep: Angelina Jolie.

Ok, enough joking around, McCain is dead meat and that`s all there is to it.
