McCain Campaigns On Final Week Before Presidential Election

And, Frankly, that frightens me.

The rest of this video isn’t so much frightening as it is sad. From the thin, reedy tenor supplying the usual contentless patriotism to the virtually contentless speech (if it can be called that), it’s kind of pitiful. Here’s an audience full of conseratives applauding (enthusiastically, even) a guy who basically got on stage and told them he didn’t really have anything to say.

Throw in a dash of racism:

“Unfortunately, we have a chairman up there who wants to redefine conservatism; he wants to make it hip hop, put it in a new package and sell it,” Wurzelbacher said. “You can’t sell principles; either you have them or you don’t.” The comments were met with applause from most of the 800 in attendance.

So, here’s what looks like the best line-up the Republicans have been able to come up with. This is their “front bench,” so far.

Inspiring. No?
