Words of Advice for McCain

Dear John,

You lost.  Sorry, but this is not something that should disappoint you, and it’s not something that you should be unused to.  Consider for a moment that feeling you had when the flying telephone pole hit your A-4.  You must have thought: “oh shit, I’m going to die.”  But you persevered.  Remember the time when they were torturing you in the Hanoi Hilton, you must’ve been thinking at one point: “I wish they’d just kill me, and get it over with.”  But you had friends in prison and they helped you survive. Remember what they say, what doesn’t kill you, just makes you stronger.

Compare that to the loss you had last night, well, my friend, this loss would seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things.  It’s not your fault at all that that this had to happen.  The economy was bad, and getting worse, that was the “October Surprise” that you had to deal with.  I wasn’t very popular, even though I know I am right in the long run, but that’s ok, I’m not here to win a popularity contest.  Your campaign people weren’t that good, certainly not Karl level, so they screwed you over in the ground game.  But you still came pretty close coming out of the convention, you actually had a chance.  But realistically, it’s all about history, there is no way that America would allow it’s first serious Black presidential candidate to go down in flames, imagine what would’ve happened to the country.  Then he had to beat someone convincing, not a Romney or a Huckabee, but only a genuine maverick would do.  So, you had to step up and lose.

So you won’t be president, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  You don’t have to deal with all of this headache I had to face every day for the last eight years.   It’s true, I set up the new guy to win big in the coming four years, how else would we gain our energy independence if it wasn’t for the pain of $140 a barrel oil.  If it wasn’t for that, do you think the green movement and Gore’s idiot movie would actually go anywhere.  So, in the end, you can still be influential in your own way, and you’ll still make a difference.  Hope that makes you feel better.




  1. Nice letter. But I must differ with your view:

    But realistically, it’s all about history, there is no way that America would allow it’s first serious Black presidential candidate to go down in flames

    More accurately would have been a statement like:

    But realistically, it’s all about history, there is no way that America would allow 4 more years of Republican “divide and rule..” and economic mess..

    The country is fed up! I am a Republican and I voted Democrat.

  2. Think of me as someone who is enabling change. You think all this talk about green energy is possible if it wasn’t for the fact that I engineered oil prices to $140+ a barrel? I talked about energy independence long before it became a buzz word in the elections. As for the economy, the mess is inevitable, for that you can thank Congress, my minions (Paulson specifically) pressed for tighter regulations, but the fact it didn’t happen just helped along this collapse. I am the catalyst for the change… now comes the agent of change.
