If You Love Our Country, You Must Love Right Wing Radio...

Yes.  I said if you love the country, you must love all the right wing Lords of Loud, because they hate John McCain.

John McCain's platform:
More Bush. 100-Year's War. No Jobs

I hate to get caught up in the spin and snapshot of McCain's win in Florida, but I woke up this morning with a pit in my stomach at the very thought of McCain being the next president.

Even prior to Florida, McCain was leading in most of the polls.  In yesterday's Los Angeles Time he out-polled Mitt Romney by nine points, and we're part of tsunami Tuesday.

It's obvious that Mike Huckabee is jockeying for the veepship, and will wield a lot power with however many delegates he winds up with at the end of the pre-prelims.

Just what we need.  McCain, who unabashedly professes love, respect and a continuation of Bush's policies, also looks like he's ready to keel over any second.

The thought of McCain teaming up with a Bible-thumbing, evangelical Jesus freak who wants to rewrite the Constitution in the image of his god is more than nauseatingly spine-chilling.

The vice president is first, last and always one heartbeat away from the presidency, and McCain doesn't look like he'll survive four years in office.

Almost every time I write about McCain I say the same thing, and I'll keep saying it until someone listens.  When are those tumors in his face going to be questioned?

Are they massive clusters of cancer cells, some of which have floated up to his brain and are slowly eating it away?  Or, are they merely nasty looking benign body invaders?

McCain is no dummy, but his way of thinking has jumped from being a maverick to borderline insanity if not dementia.

He admires Bush.  Since the 2004 election, he's been kissing the ass of the man who nearly destroyed him in the 2000 campaign.  He wants to emulate Bush, the president who's consistently had bigger disapproval ratings for longer than any other president.

Forgetting everything else for the moment, Bush's stance on torture should be enough for McCain to revile him, not admire him and his policies.  McCain is not thinking.

McCain vehemently opposed Bush's torture policies, yet he sees fit to say he'll continue all of Bush's policies.  If that isn't insane, then nothing is.

Support for McCain might prove that the Europeans are right when they say we are a young country that still has to grow up.  Either that, or we grew up too quickly and are now going through our second childhood. 

In other words, half the country -- the Republican half -- is going senile if they support McCain.
