The John McCain Making It As Hard As Possible For Me To Vote For Him National Tour, Stop 2
John McCain missed an opportunity to shut up:
John McCain ratcheted up his increasingly populist language today, using a campaign event in Iowa to say he would fire Christopher Cox, the former Republican congressman and Bush-appointed head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
At least make an effort to appear as something other than a know-nothing populist. One of those running at the top of the ticket is enough.

This comment posted on TheCorner essentially sums up my plan for the presidential election.
1. Stay at home – not vote for McCain [I would have voted but left the presidential line blank]
2. Post Saddleback debate – vote for McCain
3. Selection of Palin – donate $$ to McCain/Palin [I was prepared to send a check after my next payday]
4. McCain’s reaction to Wall St financial crisis, esp criticism of Cox and suggestion of bringing in Andrew Cuomo – see position number 1
