He says "My Friends" but you know he’s thinking "You C@#ksuckers".

This is what a broken man looks like.

Many of the GOP’s most faithful, the kind who vote in primaries despite 115-degree heat, tired long ago of McCain the Maverick, the man who had crossed the aisle to work with Democrats on issues like immigration reform, global warming, and restricting campaign contributions. “Maverick” is a mantle McCain no longer claims; in fact, he now denies he ever was one. “I never considered myself a maverick,” he told me. “I consider myself a person who serves the people of Arizona to the best of his abilities.” Yet here was Palin, urging her fans four times in 15 minutes to send McCain the Maverick back to Washington.

Whatever desire for public service John McCain may have had is gone.  It is now about hanging on to what little power and prestige he has left. He has become his own personal Greek tragedy.
