Claim: McCain May Scrap Campaign In Next Several Days

Eh... I think he will, but not yet.

His fundraising was poor -- $11.2 million last quarter -- and he's had to let go of 50 or more staffers, plus cut the salaries of his most senior advisers.

More On McCain's Woes: At NRO. This has to sting:

McCain’s futures contract has plummeted in just one week from around $12 to below $6 at InTrade.com. The contract, which can be redeemed for $100 if McCain gets the nomination (and is worthless if he does not), once sold for nearly $60. By this measure, he trails Giuliani and Thompson, who trade above $33, and Romney at $20. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas is now close behind McCain at $3.

Then again, Ron Paul's supporters are retarded, and have this childish belief that if all thirty of them band together to falsely create the impression a groundswell for Paul, the rest of us idiots -- who aren't smart about the Constitution and fiat money and piracy like Ron Paul and his fans -- will start supporting him, because we're sheep and we don't know any better.

And they have nothing better to do with their time than engage in this childish prankery, and, it seems, little more better to do with their money.

Someone please set up an inTrade thing for only Ron Paul, so I can put money against him; Paul's supporters will feel obligated to take all the action I can give them.
