McCain did it again. He did exactly the wrong thing for his presidential campaign. During his speech I could hear, in the background, his handlers gnashing their teeth as they prepared their resignations and their resumes.

Errrm-- Doesn't the number 23% mean anything to you at all, Senator?
So, you plan to carry 23% [and falling] of the electorate to the Republican Party, come next year. I'm sure they'll thank you for that. They'll fall all over themselves giving you kudos and the nomination.
Suddenly, I'm reminded of the theories of the forces behind the slide of the Roman Empire. There are scientists who theorize that the lead pipes that carried water to the city brought about delusions and hallucinations among those who governed it.
What is the plumbing in your home made of, Mr. McCain?
