Although I really haven't thought about this doughnut in quite some time, today I was reminded that it's long past time for John McCain to STFU and go gentle into that good night...

John McCain: Let’s Increase Military Support to Libyan Rebels & Train Them to Oust Gadhafi

Your Say

Let's remember how we got candidates like Bob Dole, George Bush (41 & 43), and John McCain. We decided we didn't want to risk a divisive fight inside the party. We decided the safe thing to do was all settle on one candidate. Each of us was to make up our own delusions that the candidate was perfect for this race and met our deepest needs. And then we would have a sure-fire winner with no battle scars from the primary season.

DON'T DO THIS EVER AGAIN

Be on the lookout for the failed technique of the past being used to convince you Mitt Romney, my choice over McCain, is the guy with just enough experience, just conservative enough to not turn our stomach, and bland enough the commie-libs won't call him an extremist.

Don't bet on a horse until you've seen him run a few laps and he convinces you he can overcome the usual tricks of the commie-libs and their media machine. My estimation of Romney now is he's the guy that lost early, often, and badly to the guy that lost to Obama.

If you find yourself trying to guess which candidate has the best polling advantage and then you decide to become comfortable with their resume', you are only picking the next Bob Dole/John McCain. If your guy/gal can't decisively defeat the members of the Mayberry Auxiliary likely to run in 2012, you don't need to invest in the GOPs latest Great Lame Hope to defeat Obama.

Obama starts out with 40% of voters on his side no matter what. The media will convince another 10% that the GOP candidate (insert name here) is both too weak and too dangerous to be elected. If you think one more GOP loser sitting nicely in the corner raising his hand and never being given permission to speak can overcome that disadvantage you haven't been paying attention.

Fight for the candidate you think best represents your ideas, even if your guy/gal loses. Don't fall for another John McCain or Ross Perot. You're a citizen, you owe the rest of us to vote like an adult, an adult that can learn from the past.

All of our leaders with backbone are currently busy at the state level. With this kind of money and energy and emotion tied up in a losing streak of presidential candidates we need to focus on local, state and federal legislative candidates and appointments (and let's face it, the Democrat moron-base doesn't really count a "voters" so you are correct about Obama's 40% advantage - otherwise known in social justice circles as that powerful tool called AFFIRMATIVE ACTION).
