The last hurrah

John McCain: People are begging me to run for president again.

“Particularly since the shutdown, I’ve had a spate of e-mails and letters and phone calls saying, ‘Run for president again,’” McCain told The Arizona Republic. “As you know, I’m seriously thinking about running for re-election to the Senate. But I think, in the words of the late Morris K. Udall, as far as my presidential ambitions are concerned, ‘The people have spoken — the bastards.’”…

While even McCain agrees that another presidential candidacy seems far-fetched, Bruce Merrill, a veteran Arizona political scientist and pollster, told The Republic he has fielded multiple calls from out-of-state reporters this year investigating the possibility.

I don't know who all those emailing, phoning and letter-writing McCain fans are, but I sure wouldn't want them on the jury at my trial. And those "out of state reporters" can't find any real news to screw up on?

John, please, I'm begging you. Shut up and go away.
