Straight-Talk Express to CPAC

As you probably already know, Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) is scheduled to give his much anticipated CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) speech at 2:00 p.m. today. This speech will go a long way in determining whether or not he will have conservative support in November (CPAC will conduct a straw poll on Saturday...a poll where Senator McCain finished dead last in 2007). Jed Babbin at Human Events has a great piece detailing what McCain needs to accomplish in this speech. The Washington Post also has an informative article summarizing the trouble McCain faces at the moment.

Did McCain just tell me to "calm down"?

In my opinion, McCain will go to CPAC and tell conservatives exactly what they want to hear. Then, as usual, he will continue to gouge the eyes of conservatives at every corner.
