One More Hail Mary?

Posted by Mike Rotman on September 27, 2008

When the chips are down John McCain reaches deep into his play book and throws what is known in football as a hail Mary. According to Wikipedia- or someone who has time to edit a wiki page, a hail mary pass “is made in desperation, with only a small chance of success.”

John McCain is a master of desperation.

Polls down after the Dem convention?

Throw a Hail Sarah!

Polls down after a week of beaing beaten up on ads that lie topped off by an economic mess?

Throw a Hail Suspending Campaign!

Polls down after a decent debate and another embarassing interview from Sarah Palin?

Throw Sarah out the door.

With John McCains track record of being spontaneous, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Sarah Palin suddenly announce she has to leave the ticket as she’d like to spend more time with her family, her sick baby or just to gaze up into the sky to keep an eye on Putin.
