But The Media Still Love Him

If only the mainstream press elected our presidents:

McCain '08 bid losing steam
By Ralph Z. Hallow, The Washington Times

Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign is showing signs of unraveling, with a continuing slide in the polls, voters' irritation over his support of what they called amnesty for illegal aliens and his decision to pull out of the Iowa straw poll.

Party fundraisers say potential McCain donors are hanging back while Republican voters register rage over the Arizona senator's backing of the immigration reform bill, which was sidetracked in the Senate last week. (link)

The bad news for those who appreciate big government types being in charge in Washington:
Pollster Scott Rasmussen yesterday called Mr. McCain's plunge in support "startling." "The man once considered the dominant front-runner in the race is now supported by just 11 percent of likely Republican primary voters nationwide," Mr. Rasmussen said yesterday. "That's down from 17 percent in May and 14 percent a week ago. His support is just half of what it was in January."
And an epitaph from Gary Kirk, a Republican fundraiser:
"McCain increasingly is having trouble getting support from conservatives in his party. Even in his own state of Arizona, 60 percent of the people oppose the amnesty for illegal aliens that he favors. He has undercut his own party and the White House on tax cuts, campaign finance and other issues."
Being a maverick gets McCain an appearance on Saturday Night Live. It will never get him a presidential nomination.

He dug his own grave. Let's see Katie Couric dig him out of it.
