Bad move, Senator McCain

The newly-announced Republican presidential candidate has an uphill climb to try and win back conservative voters he’s lost the last several years on issues like campaign finance reform, global warming, the “Gang of 14”, but can’t make time to attend Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this weekend.

What does he have time for, though?

McCain on LettermanMaking the big “I’m officially running for president” announcement on David Letterman.

I’ve seen poorly calculated political moves in my lifetime, but this one ranks in the top five worst.

Kim Priestap links up to a Dick Morris column where the former Clinton advisor writes that he believes McCain’s campaign is collapsing. If so, this stunt won’t help matters.

Hear those footsteps, Senator McCain? That’s the sound of even more conservative voters walking away from you.
