McCain's spending the day in Boston was originally supposed to look like a symbolic blow to Romney. While Romney was flailing around the country trying to pick up delegates, John and his Straight talk entourage would hang out in Boston and gnaw away at Romney's home town. I am sure there was a lot of high fiving and laughter when the McCain camp made this decision, but one thing is for sure, although McCain seems to want to give the proverbial finger to Romney, the voters in California and Georgia seem to be flipping it back.

The majority of McCain's campaign has revolved around his tough as nuts, tell it like it is personality. It's something America loves. Look to such movie Icons as Clint Eastwood and John Wayne for an example. Yet, as much as America loves an honest straight shooter, America also hates a bully. Look to movies like "Karate Kid" and "Some Kind Wonderful" for an example.

McCain has no chance of turning Massachusetts his way. The latest polls have Romney ahead by 25 points. While McCain lists a Massachusetts delegation of about 28 Massachusetts public figures, of which 3 are currently elected official, Mitt Romney releases a list of 75 elected and public figures who have endorsed his candidacy:

Over and over since Florida we have been told to step in line with the McCain camp. So much, it's laughable. But you know what? McCain has done nothing to make that possibility. Look to Wednesday's debate for the example.

The reasons so many conservatives can't stand McCain is his poke you in the eye and leave you with a wedgy attitude. At a time that McCain is supposed to be rallying conservatives, and being a gracious competitor, he instead takes the opportunity to play head games and take an ego trip. Good, let him. Because apparently while so many McCainiacs think it's cool, enough American's are asking why in the world would we want someone as vindictive and ego driven as McCain making trade deals and controlling our nuclear arsenal.

I make no predictions for Tuesday, but a McCain backlash seems to be gaining some traction.

I love the "poke you in the eye and leave you with a wedgy attitude" comment... that made me laugh! Mostly because it's funny, partly because it is 100% spot on. Keep up the good work.
