Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: George W. Bush is Ancient Mariner John McCain's Albatross ...

George W. Bush is Ancient Mariner John McCain's Albatross ...

"What evil looks
Had I from old and young!
Instead of the cross, the Albatross
About my neck was hung."

[Samuel Taylor Coleridge,"The Rime of the Ancient Mariner."]



Why so many Bush+McCain pics?

Good question.

Just keep scrolling down.

Now read this lovely little US Republican presidential candidate, John McCain, related report recently written by Al Jazeera's Washington correspondent, Rob Reynolds.

But first, here's a tasty teaser to tempt you.


Election diary: George W Albatross
-- By Rob Reynolds in Washington DC

McCain has tried, in a fitful and not very effective way, to distance himself from President George Bush.

John McCain, the Republican party's ancient mariner (aged 71, navy man) has a very heavy weight around his neck that threatens to sink his White House hopes. President George Bush is the bird McCain cant get rid of.

Right now, Bush's approval rating is at 28 per cent, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, but even worse, 54 per cent say that they want a president who would bring major change to existing government policies - even if that person isn't heavily experienced.
Get the picture(s)?

See what we're saying?

Sometimes, just sometimes, don't you just love rubbing salt in certain deserving sobs' wounds?
