Stick a fork in him, he's done.

I've been watching McCain's campaign looking for some signs of hope, but Ben Stein's characterization of it as "heart-breakingly bad" so many weeks ago is more true than ever.

He throws away two debates by behaving like a toddler. He can't pick a consistent message for more than a couple days, flip flopping back and forth faster than his own staff can keep track. His inconstant and bizarre behavior in a crisis makes me more convinced than ever that he's not mentally fit to hold the office. Worse yet, they've bungled Sarah Palin's debut on the national stage.

Sorry, John. I really did want to give you a chance. But my vote isn't guaranteed to anyone just based on his party. It must be earned, and you haven't even come close.

I'll support the down-ticket conservatives. But I'm leaving the top slot blank. Hey, GOP primary voters - next time, nominate a conservative.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies; The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

"The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog is."
