The rats are all jumping the ship. The USS McCain/Titanic is in full sink mode and all the traditional republicans are running away as fast as they can. Below the fold, the smart(er) rats are profiled. Thanks to the incomparable Jed Lewison for the hard work. The youtube video is a compilation of all the traditional media republican pundits pointing fingers at McCain/Palin...

David Frum (Mon Oct 13):
http://frum.nationalreview.com/...
David "axis of evil" Frum gets his "I told you so" ready at the National Review and rebukes his critics who complain that he isn't cheerleading for McCain enough.  He concludes: "Perhaps it is our job at NRO is tell our readers only what they want to hear, without much regard to whether it is true. Perhaps it is our duty just to keep smiling and to insist that everything is dandy - that John McCain's economic policies make sense, that his selection of Sarah Palin was an act of statesmanship, that she herself is the second coming of Anna Schwartz, and that nobody but an over-educated snob would ever suggest otherwise."

Michelle Malkin (Mon Oct 13):
http://michellemalkin.com/...
Michelle Malkin expresses her disappointment in McCain after learning that "John McCain had no problem calling ACORN members his friends during his ill-fated illegal alien shamnesty crusade."  She concludes, "We're Screwed '08."

Rep. Ray LaHood (Mon Oct 13):
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...
Rep. LaHood, who has represented Illinois' 18th district for seven terms and is retiring in January, told WBBM Radio that Palin should control the racially-charged heckling at her rallies: "Look it. This doesn't befit the office that she's running for. And frankly, people don't like it."

Matthew Dowd Tuesday (Oct 14):
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...
Matthew Dowd, a prominent political consultant and chief strategist for George W. Bush's reelection campaign eviscerated John McCain on Tuesday for his choice of Sarah Palin as vice president.
Dowd proclaimed that, in his heart of hearts, McCain knew he put the country at risk with his VP choice and that he would "have to live" with that fact for the rest of his career.

Mickey Edwards (Mon Oct 13):
http://www.politicalbase.com/...
Republican Mickey Edwards, formerly a congressman from Oklahoma, distances himself from McCain, saying "today, thanks to a campaign apparently managed by Moe, Curly, and Larry, he comes across as erratic (Obama's word, but it fits), impulsive, befuddled, and ill-tempered, and apparently unable to utter any words other than 'surge' and 'earmarks.'"  Edwards also plays the blame game very explicitly: "If Obama gets a big win, it will be McCain himself, and the Three Stooges calling the shots at his headquarters who will deserve whatever blame is attached for transforming a viable and energetic Obama campaign into a steamroller grinding the Republican Party into the ground."

Joshua Trevino (Fri Oct 10):
http://joshuatrevino.com/...
Joshua Trevino, co-founder of RedState.com, wrote on his blog: "In the end, I couldn't do it...I opened it fully intending to vote for John McCain...Do I believe in John McCain? Not as much as I used to. Do I believe in Sarah Palin? Despite my early enthusiasm for her, now not at all. Do I believe in the national Republican Party? Not in the slightest -- even though I see no meaningful alternative to it. So, my choice for President in 2008, scrawled in my ballot as an act of futile protest, is Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana."

Christopher Buckley (Fri Oct 10):
http://www.thedailybeast.com/...
Christopher Buckley, son of National Review founder William F. Buckley, and columnist for the National Review himself, endorsed Barack Obama, saying "this campaign has changed John McCain. It has made him inauthentic."

Andrew Sullivan (Oct 6):
http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.co...
http://www.republicansforobama.org/...
This is not America. And it's a chilling preview of how Putin-like a Palin-McCain administration would be.

Christopher Hitchens (Mon Oct 13):
http://www.slate.com/...
Vote for Obama
MCCAIN LACKS THE CHARACTER AND TEMPERAMENT TO BE PRESIDENT. AND PALIN IS SIMPLY A DISGRACE.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg NY,NY (Tue Oct 14):
http://www.politico.com/...
"The question is, Who is he and what is he?" the mayor said.   "If his whole strategy is, 'What's it take to win' then he shouldn't win and maybe he won't win because the public is a lot smarter than that."

Erick Erickson (Mon Oct 13):
http://www.redstate.com/...
Erick Erickson, "editor in chief" of RedState.com, is giving up on McCain: "With only a few weeks left until election day, let's be blunt: McCain-Palin '08 does not seem to be making headway against the polling."  He suggests that McCain needs to choose between himself and senate/house Republicans, and suggests that his readers focus on downballot races: "The Republican numbers in the House and Senate can be salvaged, but in the next few weeks there must be a realistic assessment from the McCain campaign regarding winning his own race versus helping Congressional Republicans mitigate their losses."

Norm Coleman (Fri Oct 10):
http://www.fivethirtyeight.com/...
Coleman bails on McCain rally: "[Norm] Coleman told reporters that he would not be appearing at a planned rally with McCain this afternoon. Could it be McCain's sliding polling numbers in Minnesota? His attacks on Obama?"

Ed Rollins (Mon Oct 13):
http://www.cnn.com/...
Rollins, who managed Reagan's 1984 campaign: "And while chaos and disarray reigned supreme in Sen. Barack Obama's opponents' campaigns, the steady, disciplined and strategically driven Obama campaign marches forward toward likely victory."

Bill Kristol (Mon Oct 13):
http://www.nytimes.com/...
Kristol: "It's time for John McCain to fire his campaign. He has nothing to lose. His campaign is totally overmatched by Obama's."

Lee Terry (Mon Oct 13):
http://www.independent.co.uk/...
In Nebraska, a Republican representative, Lee Terry, ran a newspaper ad featuring support from a woman who called herself an "Obama-Terry voter."

Tom Ellis (Sun Oct 12):
http://www.latimes.com/...
Tom Ellis, GOP chairman in Butler County, Ohio, a key Republican stronghold in 2004, said there had been "some slippage" for McCain in recent weeks. He said Republicans were finding it "hard to penetrate" the torrent of bad economic news and deliver an effective pitch to independents. And the Arizona senator's attacks on Obama's past links to former radical William Ayers, he said, "do not garner him any advantage" with swing voters. "There's a sense of frustration at this point," Ellis said. "What I hear is people are expecting more of the Republican ticket. They've got to speak directly to the economic issues. People want to hear specific solutions from Sen. McCain."

Michelle Laxalt (Thu Oct 9):
http://www.youtube.com/...
Republican Laxalt slams the McCain campaign's tactics.

Roger Stone (Sun Oct 12):
http://www.miamiherald.com/...
Roger Stone, a longtime McCain supporter, said the state party and the national campaign bear almost equal blame. ''This effort lacks coordination and a cooperative spirit and it's showing,'' Stone said. "But it's more than mechanics. The campaign has no consistent message.''

George LeMieux (Sun Oct 12):
http://www.miamiherald.com/...
George LeMieux, Crist's former campaign manager and staff chief, said McCain erred in not choosing Crist as running mate. ''If Gov. Crist was the vice presidential nominee, John McCain would be winning Florida,'' he said.

Charlie Crist (Sun Oct 12):
http://www.miamiherald.com/...
"Saturday, he skipped a McCain football rally and instead went to Disney World."

Sen. Lincoln Chaffee, R (RI) (Oct 9):
http://www.mlive.com/...
Lincoln Chafee, a former Republican U.S. senator from Rhode Island, is throwing his support behind Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, saying he is disillusioned with Republican John McCain.

"Sen. Obama is the first Democrat I've ever voted for," Chafee said during a stop in Grand Rapids this morning.

Perry Diaz (Wed Oct 8):
http://www.filipinosforobama.org/...
Perry Diaz, chairman of the National Federation of Filipino-American Republicans, resigned from his post and withdrew his endorsement, saying "I endorsed McCain before the California primary believing that he was the right man for the job.  I was wrong.  His selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate and his decision a few days ago to resort to personal attacks on Obama's character and integrity run counter to my personal beliefs and core values.  I have lost my respect for McCain and I believe that a McCain/Palin administration would only worsen the economic situation in the country."

David Brooks (Wed Oct 8):
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...
David Brooks rips apart McCain's pick for VP, saying "Sarah Palin represents a fatal cancer to the Republican party."

George Will (Wed Oct 8):
http://www.chron.com/...
George Will laments McCain's campaign and quotes an Orioles manager: "Are you going to get any better or is this it?"  His takeaway?  "Obama in a romp in November? Don't be surprised"

Lilibet Hagel (Tue Oct 7):
http://www.youtube.com/...
Lilibet Hagel, wife of Republican senator Chuck Hagel, appeared with Susan Eisenhower to endorse Barack Obama, saying that this election is "not about fighting phantom issues churned out by a top-notch slander machine.  Most importantly it is not about distracting the public - you and me - with whatever slurs someone thinks will stick."

William Milliken (Fri Oct 10):
http://www.mlive.com/...
Former Republican Governor of Michigan William Milliken, who endorsed McCain during the primaries, said: "He is not the McCain I endorsed; he keeps saying, 'Who is Barack Obama?' I would ask the question, 'Who is John McCain?' because his campaign has become rather disappointing to me. I'm disappointed in the tenor and the personal attacks on the part of the McCain campaign, when he ought to be talking about the issues."

Bill Kristol (Sun Oct 12):
http://www.youtube.com/...
On FOX News Sunday, Kristol said the McCain campaign was "stupid...pathetic...flailing."

Patrick Ruffini (Sat Oct 11):
http://www.thenextright.com/...
Conservative columnist Patrick Ruffini argues that the RNC needs to give up on McCain and try to save Republican house and senate seats, and that "McCain should start explicitly making the argument for divided government, with him as the only hope of preserving it. This is unlikely to be a voting issue at the Presidential level, but we need to get the idea percolating that we are about to elect Obama with unchecked, unlimited power."  That is, Ruffini wants to sacrifice McCain to save congressional Republicans.

Mitt Romney (Sat Oct 11):
http://www.nytimes.com/...
Mitt Romney said McCain, who has offered scattershot proposals on the economy, should present a broad vision of how he would lead the country through the economic crisis. "I'm talking about standing above the tactical alternatives that are being considered," Romney said, "and establish an economic vision that is able to convince the American people that he really knows how to strengthen the economy."

Robert A. Gleason Jr. (Sat Oct 11):
http://www.nytimes.com/...
Robert A. Gleason Jr., the Republican chairman in Pennsylvania, said he was concerned that Mr. McCain's increasingly aggressive tone was not working with moderate voters and women in the important southeastern part of a state that is at the top of Mr. McCain's must-win list.

Gov. Tommy Thompson, R-Ws (Sat Oct 11):
http://www.nytimes.com/...
Former Republican Governor of Wisconsin, said it would be difficult for Mr. McCain to win in his state but not impossible, particularly if he campaigned in conservative Democratic parts of the state. Asked if he was happy with Mr. McCain's campaign, Mr. Thompson replied, "No," and he added, "I don't know who is."

Saul Anuzis (Sat Oct 11):
http://www.nytimes.com/...
Saul Anuzis, the Republican chairman in Michigan, said "I think you're seeing a turning point, you're starting to feel real frustration because we are running out of time. Our message, the campaign's message, isn't connecting."

Bob Eleveld (Fri Oct 10):
http://www.mlive.com/...
Bob Eleveld, former Kent County Republican chairman who led McCain's West Michigan campaign in 2000, said: "I'm not supporting either of them [McCain or Obama] at this point. I think the straight talk is gone."

Citizens of the United States Of America (Tue Oct 14):
http://www.nytimes.com/...
The McCain campaign’s recent angry tone and sharply personal attacks on Senator Barack Obama appear to have backfired and tarnished Senator John McCain more than their intended target, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll has found.

Michigan GOP (Thu Oct 9):
http://rawstory.com/...
http://www.michiganliberal.com/...
The Michigan GOP is in disarray, and said the following about those jumping ship in an email they sent to local supporters: "In the meantime, there have been several individuals, including some disgruntled former employees, who have tried to take advantage of the situation by stealing cell phones, and other electronic equipment, as well as substantial amounts of collateral materials.  In at least one instance there was an employee who vandalized their victory center on the way out the door."

National Review Editorial Board (Thu Oct 9):
http://article.nationalreview.com/...
"We never thought we would defend the Frank-Dodd legislation, which we bitterly opposed last summer. But it looks downright prudent compared to what McCain has proposed. McCain's plan is a full bailout for lenders."

Kathleen Parker (Fri Sep 26):
http://article.nationalreview.com/...
Conservative columnist Kathleen Parker wrote in the National Review that Sarah Palin is "out of her league" and should step down for the good of her country.

Wick Allison (Mon Sep 22):
http://www.statesman.com/...
Wick Allison, former publisher of the National Review and current editor-in-chief of D magazine, endorses Obama and writes "I made the maximum donation to John McCain during the primaries, when there was still hope he might come to his senses.  But I now see that Obama is almost the ideal candidate for this moment in American history."

WSJ Editorial Board (Fri Sep 19):
http://online.wsj.com/...
In a crisis, voters want steady, calm leadership, not easy, misleading answers that will do nothing to help. Mr. McCain is sounding like a candidate searching for a political foil rather than a genuine solution. He'll never beat Mr. Obama by running as an angry populist like Al Gore, circa 2000.

Peggy Noonan and Mike Murphy (Wed Sep 3):
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...
Noonan and Murphy get caught on an open mic griping about the choice of Sarah Palin.  Noonan says "The most qualified? No. I think they went for this, excuse me, political bullsh** about narratives. Every time the Republicans do that, because that's not where they live and that's not what they're good at, they blow it."  Murphy adds that the choice was "cynical" and "gimmicky."

UPDATE:

Michael Smerconish (Fri Oct 17)
http://a.media.abcnews.com/...
"I’ve decided," he said. "My conclusion comes after reading the candidates’ memoirs and campaign platforms, attending both party conventions, interviewing both men multiple times, and watching all primary and general election debates.

"John McCain is an honorable man who has served his country well. But he will not get my vote. For the first time since registering as a Republican 28 years ago, I’m voting for a Democrat for president.

General Colin Powell (Sun Oct19)
http://www.washingtonpost.com/...
Colin L. Powell yesterday became the most prominent Republican to endorse Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, with the former secretary of state and retired four-star general declaring the senator from Illinois to be a "transformational" figure who would "electrify our country . . . [and] the world."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
