  1. Aren’t there actually some technical campaign spending rules that outline the method to their madness?

  2. Actually, yes.

    Still, it gets rather pedantic, doesn’t it?

  3. Yes, technical legal reasons, but the media play right along and treat these things as newsworthy. I heard it on KPBS radio earlier today referred to as McCain “revealing” his plans. Actually, the report was more like, tonight on such and such show McCain will reveal that he will announce in April. Oh, please… give me some NEWS!

    I like the Taylor rule. So, let me get this out of the way now. I will not be a candidate for the presidency of these United States (or any other united or disunited states, for that matter).

  4. Yeah, the media really could give it a rest. You are right about that.

  5. I think it appropriate that Senator McCain announced his candidacy on a late night entertainment program. I believe that in the end his campaign may provide some entertainment but little substance that will be well received by the American public.

    McCain is seen as a maverick and is not well liked by many even within his own Republican Party. His position on Iraq will not be a popular one with the voting public except for the die hard no matter what see no evil Bush supporters. One real risk to his campaign is that conditions in Iraq will likely deteriorate even further during his campaign.

    That would impact in negative fashion on his judgement.

  7. [...] His continued support of a troop “surge” will cost him dearly in the 2008 presidential race. Announcing that he will run on a late night entertainment show was probably appropriate. In the end I expect that McCain’s efforts to become President will provide more entertainment than substance. [...]
