McCain's Sad Last Days

[posted by Callimachus]

This reminds me of the iconic "National Enquirer" headline whenever some former Hollywood star nears death. The outside teaser always features a picture of fading star looking haggard, and the headline "_________'s sad last days." Hollowood careers, like presidential dreams, never end with a sense of satisfaction. To think that six years ago I thought he'd make a pretty good president. I still think he would have been better than what we got. But that's not saying a lot.
