That sound...it's the last real conservatives thundering away from the McCain campaign

Just a short update since I need to go to sleep - there's just too much to save up for tomorrow.

First of all, after a McCain spokesman attacked Bill Kristol for attacking the McCain campaign, accusing him of buying into Obama's party line (Bill Kristol!?!!!?!??), Kristol attacked back saying McCain was better than his campaign, and effectively begging McCain to speak up for himself and salvage the campaign.

As if that weren't enough, in response to the flack he received after his endorsement of Obama (see my earlier post), Christopher Buckley offered to resign from the National Review, and to his surprise his resignation was accepted. Buckley's response: "[T]o paraphrase Ronald Reagan, I didn’t leave the Republican Party, the Republican Party left me.”

Finally, as if trying to make it completely clear that associating Ayers with Obama is a meaningless attempt at transparent 'us' vs. 'them' propaganda, in an attempt to make Obama into the 'outsider' that so many Republicans clearly see him as, William Timmons, the lobbyist picked by McCaign to lead his transition team, apparently lobbied on behalf of Saddam Hussein to ease international sanctions against his regime.

The mental clusterfuck this causes to my logic circuits is almost too much. I guess we should be happy McCain actually is planning a transition team - a week or so ago he wasn't so much.

But now let's see. The straight talk express, against lobbyists and terrorists, and for the war against Saddam (which was however started by people who for the most part had once 'palled' around with Saddam (see Rumsfeld)), has hired someone who also 'palled' around with Saddam to lead the transition team that would, in the unlikely event McCain won, put into place the leadership structure that would govern the country for the next four years.

McCain wants to put a terrorist-sympathizer in charge of his transition to the Oval Office?

This is really too much. I'm going to bed folks. Next thing I'm going to read is that of course McCain knows how to get Osama Bin Laden - he's putting him in charge of Homeland Security...
