The latest on the meltdown of the McCain "campaign":
1. No controlling fundraising authority: Campaign related phone calls from the Senate may violate the same rules McCain razzed Gore about in 2000.
2. "Gay sweaters" made me do it:
In the final days of his imploding candidacy, John McCain has taken a page out of Richard Nixon’s play book, finding increasingly bizarre explanations for his political failures. Strangest of all: He reportedly feels his handlers forced him to wear “gay sweaters.”
3. Blame Florida:
An official with the John McCain presidential campaign was arrested for allegedly soliciting oral sex from a policeman in Florida yesterday.
Bob Allen, a member of the Florida House of Representatives, is one of six Florida co-chairs for the Arizona Republican senator's 2008 White House bid.
4. Two top Iowa staffers exit.
McCain is a great American, but not so great a candidate.
