Mr. Straight Talk on his way out

The man is losing ground in the polls and running short on money. Pretty soon, he's going to slip into the lower tier of GOP hopefuls alongside such cretins as Tom Tancredo.

His dire situation is detailed here and here and here.

Of course, the biggest of McCain's problems is that his candidacy is entirely dependent upon the U.S. military surge in Iraq succeeding. In that regard, he has no Plan B, as we see here.

The surge so far is a big failure. At least 289 people were killed in Iraq just today, as noted here. Earlier this week, a suicide bomber managed to penetrate the Green Zone in Central Baghdad, presumably the safest spot in the whole country.
