The prediction, according to the babbling talking heads last evening, is that the GOP will, slowly, begin to stand in line behind Johnnie Boy, for he, with his war heroism, deep Senatorial experience, and, by gosh, his Come-Back-Kid determination, is the only one, the gallant RNC soldier-in-shining-armor who can take on the Dragon Hillary.
The GOP, for many reasons, is on their knees every night, praying for a Hillary-McCain showdown.
It will be the 1990’s all over again, with needing little more than to pull out the Clinton Bashing box from the archives.
If you were, during the South Carolina Primary, confused as to which Clinton was running, wait’ll a general election of McCain-Hillary … You’ll have a clearer vision looking through the bottom of a Coca-Cola bottle …
For, if the get Obama, it will be the Kennedy-Nixon Debate every single day of the campaign, McCain tripping over his Father Time beard, a skeletal-dust-filled suit laying in front of the voting stations by the time election day rolls around.
The youth and exuberance, the oratory skills, of Obama will paint the Straight Talk Express bus into a hearse, McCain’s campaign posters into The Picture of Dorian Gray.
And that’s just the visuals.
McCain’s going to have an arduous campaign, having to carry The Commander Guy on this back throughout.
It will be hope, and rebuilding America’s integrity, versus the 100-year war candidate.
No doubt, the McCain crew is already starting to put the bus in reverse, and will frame McCain’s hawkish embrace of the Bush Doctrine as a Korea-like, policing mission.
Good luck, and order some neck braces.
Driving in reverse for so long a period of time is surely to cause some discomfort.
Hmmm … Didn’t Bob Dole have his own bag of war heroism, and his own deep Senatorial experience?
If Dole isn’t plagued by raging hard-ons, maybe, just maybe, the GOP will really reach into the “It’s Your Turn” bag and match up Dole with Johnnie for another run at it, punching the All-Time, Grand OLD Party ticket …
To steal from The Commander Guy … Bring them on!
