The Rum and Popcorn 100

I got a lot of problems with these people!

21. Suspending your campaign

This was the first really bad sign for John McCain, and whoever gave him the advice to do this should never work again. Designed to make him come across as “country first”, putting the economy ahead of his own ambition, it instead made him look like a grandstanding politician. Which was kind of the essence of everything that went wrong. Instead of just being his old maverick self, he made too many moves that people could see through as a guy trying to look like a maverick. And this was the gold standard. It helped make him look like a guy who knew he was going to lose this election.
