McCain: Tons of people want me to run for president again (yeah, okay)
The Daily Caller ^ | November 11, 2013 | Vince Coglianese, managing editor

John McCain is apparently fielding a “spate of e-mails and letters and phone calls” from people who want him to run for president again.

But, the Republican senator from Arizona told the Arizona Republic that he’s not really considering another run for the White House:

“‘Particularly since the shutdown, I’ve had a spate of e-mails and letters and phone calls saying, ‘Run for president again,” McCain told The Arizona Republic. ‘As you know, I’m seriously thinking about running for re-election to the Senate. But I think, in the words of the late Morris K. Udall, as far as my presidential ambitions are concerned, ‘The people have spoken — the bastards.””

[...]

“‘I can assure you, I don’t see it,’ said McCain, who will turn 80 in 2016. ‘It’s not on my radar.’”

On Monday, conservative blogger Allahpundit, of Hot Air, reacted by laughing off the idea that McCain is inundated with “Run, John, run!” requests....

“Tens” is not the same as “tons.”

Yeah. The same types (e.g., Chris Matthews) who goaded him into running the first time. Their entire motivation is that they just knew McCain would implode on the campaign trail. He was literally set up to lose.

It only takes a dozen or so people to make up a ton, really so he may be right.

Averaging about 200 pounds each, ten would be a ton. Fewer are needed if they are Chris Christie size.

Just a few days ago, Romney hinted that ‘some’ were wanting him to consider another run.

Amazing how quickly the mind can become confused. Apparently he still thinks this is 2007 and it’s his turn to shepherd the GOP faithful to victory over the VC.

For those of you born in the past 20 years google it.

At 150lbs./person, that’s about 30 people to get to 4500lbs. That’s about 2 or so “tons” of people.

What does he mean AGAIN? He didn’t run the first time. Just about all he did was to keep telling us that His opponent was a good person who we did not have to fear. McCain the islamoNazi enabler maybe. But McCain a candidate? No way, Jose. Get thee to a nursing home, preferably one with a good mental ward.
