What is McCain up to?

Even with pundits opining that McCain hurt himself with his “Man, am I old!” turn on SNL last weekend, he’s continuing to go kamikaze on us. On a soon-to-air Ellen show, the affable talk show host dogs him about her upcoming marriage to long time girlfriend Portia DeRossi, which he opposes. He tried to segue with talk of civil unions, etc. but both held fast, however nicely. Homey didn’t budge but he was clearly dodging bullets.

Then, as if he hadn’t suffered enough, he sat down with Essence “Sister Grrl” magazine, even as MoJo’s catalogued the dearth of black GOP candidates. Then, his mega-rich and pretty f’ing hot wife vogued barefoot and all natural in Vogue.

WTFO, with McCain? Desperation or penance?
