In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

McCain's Prediction

Michael Blowhard writes:

Dear Blowhards --

Well, that's certainly a relief!

But what if he's being optimistic?



posted by Michael at May 15, 2008

Oh, who can take tomorrow, dip it in a dream

Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream

The Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can

The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

The Candy Man makes everything he bakes satisfying and delicious
Talk about your childhood wishes, you can even eat the dishes

We can win this in _____ years. Need I draw the obvious Vietnam analogy? I didn't think so.

I did laugh at the reporter's characterization of speech as "mystical." Perhaps the media infatuation with McCain is at long last coming to an end...

That "mystical" was strange, wasn't it? After reading it I spent 30 seconds making sure the article wasn't an Onion parody.

McCain, running as a Democrat Lite, will lose. Why go for ersatz socialism when you can get the real thing, undiluted?
