I disagree with the reporter’s assessment of the weight John McCain’s endorsement in 2012 would carry for a Republican presidential candidate. RINOs will no doubt be out of season amongst a pool of candidates trying to ride the Tea Party wave of 2010 into the Oval Office.

From Yahoo News:

Silence is said to sometimes speak volumes. Senator John McCain (R-AZ), 2008 presidential hopeful and a man whose endorsement in the upcoming 2012 presidential primaries would provide a powerful push to a politician’s campaign, told Politico this week that he had no plans of endorsing anyone for the 2012 Republican Party nomination. No endorsement of anyone, of course, would include his 2008 running mate, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin…

“I think I’m staying out of this for the first time in many years,” McCain told Politico.

He was then asked if it meant he would stay out of the race altogether. His reply? “Most likely.”

If a breeze just blew through your hair it was only a bunch of potential GOP candidates breathing a collective sigh of relief.

Besides, for what it’s worth, I think McCain has already made his endorsement.

    In 'other' news!:

    Michael Jackson will 'not' be joining The Jackson 5 Re-Union Tour!

    Sorry John-john, but this gal is tough enough to finish out a 'tour' at the Hanoi Hilton too. She's infinitely more viable politically going forward and may actually have a future?

    The article did not specify in which direction this "powerful push" would be; my own guess is right over a cliff.

    Just got caught up reading all the StuporBowl comments! Thanks to all. Hysterical. Makes me almost glad to have been driving 4+ hours back from S. Oregon thru "no man's land" ( w/ basically no AM Radio either? )

    Unfortunately an affirmation of what most of us suspected any way. Ran into our Colonel up at the Gym and he said "Will! 'What'.., you're working out instead of watching the big game!?" I reluctantly admitted I wasn't a big NFL guy and he said "Now that I'm nearing retirement.., I can finally admit that too!" LOL.

    This is news? Shoot, the guy wasn't exactly 'in' the last campaign season, was he?

    Like his buddy Obama, isn`t McCain also good (or bad) for the "reverse Midas touch" ?

    I`m DONE w/ McShamnesty AND holding my nose !
