Let's start a word counter for the many times John McCain says: "My friends" in his speeches. He seems like he uses it after every sentence and it's as phony as a three dollar bill. <correction> Is Limbaugh or Ingraham his "friends? In one of the most uninspiring speeches I've ever watched---I think I heard some weird chanting going on in the crowd of McCain's supporters too. Wow, almost cult-like. And what's with that glassy look in his eyes? Jack Kemp wrote a piece that appeared on Townhall---begging Conservative talkies to get off McCrazy's back.

You gave him your best shots and he took it like a man. Now, as he heads toward the nomination, I urge you to continue to be critical, but to do so in measured ways that will not damage his ability to win in November against those who would weaken our nation's defense, wave a white flag to al-Qaida, socialize our health-care system, and promote income redistribution and class warfare instead of economic growth and equality of opportunity.

It's Kemp that's waving the white flag to the Hannity's...
