McCain on the other hand, is often respected by those on the left, even if they'd prefer to have one of their own on office. Even though I was disappointed in and baffled by much of McCain's cozying up to Bush during Shrub's unpopular second term, I feel no sense of dread at the idea of his possibly assuming office after baby Bush makes that final transition back to his ranch in Texas to clear brush for the rest of his days. Plus, the hardcore Democrats won't even need a victory of their own to piss off the likes of Anne Coulter and the pill-popping Rush Limbaugh. McCain has already gotten them in such a tizzy that they've already attempted to cannibalize their own best chance at a victory in November. The Democrats really can't lose on this one. They either win and piss off the right, or they lose and the right's own candidate pisses them off.
Still, this makes it that much harder for Obama and Clinton to have a chance in the fall. McCain is didn't have the annoying face of Romney and is turning out to be fairly popular. Sure Obama and Clinton are doing well despite their genders and genetic makeups in the Democratic Primaries even in the South, but in November, they'll also need to pull in voters who don't declare themselves as Democrats at the polls. Then, lacking a penis or having too much melanin could be the difference for undecided voters between the eventual Democratic candidate and McCain, who has both the penis and amount of melanin that voters are used to in their high-profile American politicians.Maybe McCain should take his rallying cry from a modified version of the Hillshire Farms commercials: "Go (white) Meat!"
