That Should be the End of McCain…

Bob Allen

This is precisely what John McCain did not want to hear. Excatly one day after four of his top political strategists stepped down, the co-chairman of his Florida campaign was arrested Wednesday for allegedly offering $20.00 to a prostitute for sex – but that’s not the problem really. Besides the fact he’s out of touch with current rates for such things – the real problem is that the prostitute was an undercover Titusville, Florida police officer. Oops. Consequently, Florida state Rep. Bob Allen faces charges of solicitation for prostitution after he was arrested.

Allen told CNN affiliate WFTV in Florida that the incident was “a very big misunderstanding.” Yeah I bet. The only misunderstanding was on your part when you realized that you should have spent the twenty on scratch-off lottery tickets.

So you may be saying – Another scumbag politician masquerading as a social and moral leader is caught with a wandering pee pee? So what! Maybe so, but this scumbag, I believe, will be the final nail in the coffin of an already struggling McCain White House run in 2008. McCain’s troubles really began several month’s ago when he decided that he would continue to support the war in Iraq (strike one). Then, to prove his point, he proceeded to visit Iraq this last spring and report to the world that things were wonderful. “It reminds me of an open air market in Indiana…” he said (strike two). Your co-chair for the campaign in the state that helped decide the last two presidential elections is caught trolling for sex in a park… (strike three). Sprinkle in some Beach Boys parody songs about bombing Iran, and the constant vasilating on key issues, and what we get is a recipe for implosion. 2000 seems like a lifetime ago doesn’t it.? I wonder if McCain is second guessing his decision to play wet nurse to George Bush when wound up just it in the shorts again? Look for McCain to dropout by Labor Day or sooner. With any luck…sooner.

  1. Most of the conservatives were upset with McCain-Feingold and the immigration bill. He was taking plenty of heat from both sides already. But you’re right, this isn’t a positive development for him.

    BTW- $20?!?!

  2. So much for the maverick candidate in 2000. I actually liked the guy. At least he seemed honest and somewhat anti-Bush. Now it just seems as though his cheese has slid off his cracker – if you know what i mean.
