Bob Barr hasn't really been a player in the polls as many had hoped but he's definitely here at the end, sending a hot skewer into the Obit of the McCain campaign... this is the sort of shit talking that makes a liberuls heart swim for the old fool Bob Barr

"The wheels on the Straight Talk Express have come off," Barr, the former Republican congressman from Georgia, said in a statement released from Atlanta.

'''Sen. McCain will be spending the last two weeks before the election on his 'farewell tour' across America. Sen McCain's mixed and angry message, as well as his support of big-spending policies, have killed any chance McCain may have had to win this election.

"Now, principled conservatives can vote their conscience instead of voting for a faux-conservative just because he carries the Republican label," Barr said. "Small 'L' libertarians don't have to vote defensively for the lesser of two evils because it is clear that McCain no longer has any realistic chance to win the election.

Luckily, Bob Barr hasn't ultimately taken away much vote from Obama, but having him here at this point pissing on McCain's campaign is just too funny to pass up.

Cheers

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
