John McCain e-mailed today looking for some help:
The road was a difficult one from the outset. Yet, your faith, your support and friendship never wavered. Just as I have proudly served my country for more than half a century I am as committed as ever to helping see our mission through.
So to continue the movement, I have decided to launch a new grassroots organization called Country First.
Today, I’m asking you as a friend and supporter to renew your commitment to our common goals by becoming a Charter Member of Country First with an online contribution.
Johnny Johnny — I don’t know what you thought this was, but it basically came down to you not being Barack Obama.Â You never really meant anything to me John.Â Sorry, but that’s just what it was.Â I never really liked ya very much, you know?
In all seriousness though, John McCain has rendered a great service to his country in his military career, and later in his political carreer, and I’ve always been impressed by his ability to come back and win when everyone else had left him for dead.Â But in the big contest, when everything was on the line, he ran an awful campaign that utterly failed.Â It is time for him to go gently into that good night and serve the remainder of his career as the Senior Senator from Arizona.Â The GOP needs to march under fresh leadership if it’s going to move forward.
