All you need to know about McCain…

The NY Times has endorsed Hillary Clinton and John McCain for president. Neither is a surprise but if you are a republican or conservative, there is no greater warning sign. It is a warning that if the NYT’s likes McCain, there can only be two reasons; they think he can be beat, or they believe he is the least conservative candidate. I am thinking it is the first reason.

I don’t understand how he is in the game at this point. He is being propped up by the liberal media and so far by independent voters. If he wins in Florida it will just be further validation that the Republican Party is no longer a home for conservatives. It will be time to form a new party for the former Reagan coalition.

So instead of this endorsement being a feather in McCain’s cap, it should be the only sign conservatives need to run for the hills from his campaign. Just a thought…

I agree with your first reason for the NYT endorsement. I also agree with Sheri & Kenny on the pain that would be felt by me and I'm sure many conservatives if left with no other choice than McCain :(
