Time magazine is already handicapping a hypothetical Clinton vs McCain presidential race.
Elsewhere in the MSM, Newsweek asks the question: “Should Steve shoot himself in the kneecap, or shove a flat-head screwdriver into his right eye?”
Clinton vs McCain?
That race would be a media fantasy come true, and a nightmate for pretty much everyone else.
Ick. Time to write ‘Donald Duck’ on the ballot…
McCain is not capable of winning the Republican nomination. It’s a useful litmus test for a political journalist: ask them “how could John McCain get the Republican nomination?”
Any answer other than “well, if he was the only Republican above the state precinct chairperson level who wasn’t at the convention, and a meteor struck it…maybe he’d have a chance”, and the journalist in question is just kidding themselves.
Yeah, we hate him THAT much.
Don’t forget everyone’s perrinial favorite 3rd party candidate: meat tenderizer to the family jewels.
I think they should be concentrating on a Clinton-McCain ticket – which is disgustingly more possible. They’re both so desperate to get into the White House – I don’t think they care if they have to do it together. It would be a ‘MERGE’ ticket – the worst of both worlds. A liberal and a RHINO. Remember, he’s a MAVERICK!
I have quit reading the Belgravia Dispatch as Greggie supports McCain. To be blunt and brief, John McCain has a tin ear when it comes to ethics, so he needs to write laws for him to obey so he can have the appearance of being ethical. Of course the fact that these laws destroys freedom is none of his concern.
Go with the screwdriver but first buy a black eye patch. Chicks dig the eye patch. Oh, and practice practice talking like a pirate.
Remember that September 19 is talk like a pirate day.
How about drink shooters and screwdrivers? Seems more like us…
I’m sure Time’s writers know McCain has almost no chance in a Republican primary, and won’t run as an independent (Hillary, on the other hand, will almost certainly be the Democratic nominee if she runs). So why do they keep running stories like this?
David — McCain doesn’t even obey the laws he writes.
They keep running stories like that because they want to keep McCain fresh in the public’s mind as the heir presumptive, so that when the real Republican candidate is nominated, a contretemps will be already in place and ready to be exploited.
For many years, I’ve been saying that McCain is the most dangerous person in the world because he alone can get Hillary elected. His massive ego encased in a pea brain would be flattered into responding to a media drumbeat for a third party with him at the head of the ticket, add Soros et al and unlimited funds and the same naifs who voted for Perot and McCain could well take us all into the deepest hell of another Clinton administration.
Hey, how about we have a Clinton-McCain ticket running against a McCain-Clinton ticket. So far as I know there’s nothing that prohibits this. Then Big Media can have a win-win situation no matter what happens!
You can always console yourself by contemplating a Clinton/Rice contest. (And imagining all the disgruntlement on the left: “The Republicans nominated a black woman?”)
Stephen, there’s no benefit to maiming yourself. It’s the eyes and ears–the only safety lies in eliminating them both.
I vote for the kneecap. A facial self-injury is too extreme, considering how good looking you are (and I don’t say that about other men with any regularity). Plus, you look like you could pull off both the “I coulda been sleepin’ wit da fishes” thing and the “I coulda been a contenda” thing.
Although I’m thinking your wife might be more inclined toward longer-lasting pity if it was the eye.
Sounds like we need another Bush in the mix. Jebediah, come on down! That clever mix of Adolf Hitler and Daffy Duck, renowned author of Mein Quack. Rack ‘em up, mow ‘em down.
Dear God. If this happens I’m voting for Christopher Walken.

RE: Should He? Or Should They?

Is Newsweak trying to offer suggestions? Prior to their taking direct action? Or contracting someone to do it for them?
Lady Hildemort vs. Johnny RINO? Time for another ballot choice…
FOR PRESIDENT: Bill D. Cat
FOR VICE-PRESIDENT: P. Opus
PARTY: American Meadow
If it’s a choice between Hillary and McCain, it’ll be the country that’s handicapped…
The media is focusing on McCain because they know that the two other options mean certain doom for the Dems (and Hillary in particular) – Rudy or Rice.
I agree with Robert. McCain couldn’t make it past the primaries. He is deeply loathed, as he deserves to be.
I am glad to find out that I’m the only one that hates John McCain. If that ticket comes up, I think they should offer the option to vote “against” someone. Then results might be something like:
30% FOR Hilary
10% FOR McCain
45% AGAINST Hilary
And that wouldn’t even count the 250 million that just stayed home.
Speaking as a republican (but not a Republican), if it comes to Jeb vs. Hillary, I’m-a votin’ for Hillary.
Two generations of one family is more than enough.
Besides, there’s something kinda nasty about voting for a politician you want to have sex with, so I might “go” for Hillary anyway.
On the other hand -as erbo points out- we can always revive the Meadow Party: “Why not the worst?”
In order to avoid another Bush, you’d vote for another Clinton?
I’m not seeing the logic here.
ps to josh: I don’t hate McCain, I merely despise him…. the man thinks he’s a lot smarter than he actually is, and that’s asking for trouble.
Both parties should dump all candidates whose name we know, just to convince us that more than ten people out of 300 million are qualified for the job.
A #2 Phillips has long been the choice of masochists everywhere…where do these people get their information? The internet?
Time’s missing the boat- they need to handicap Sen. Clinton v. Sen Allen. There’s no way that McCain’s going to be the nominee- he’s considered too liberal by the party’s base (as incredible as that sounds).
Go with the eye. Losing his right eye didn’t hurt Swiss math genius Leonard Euler’s career much.
What are they smokin at TIME? McCain’s Bush attacking M/F law has earned him the animosity of all conservative and centrist GOP folk. He is not a serious candidate. Now Newt, Rudy or Dr. Rice – they are the ones to compare and contrast.
