The Boston Globe picked up Bob&#8217;s comments about McCain&#8217;s farewell tour:


It&#8217;s bad enough when Democrats say you&#8217;re doomed, or when a few Republicans throw in the towel. But now Bob Barr, the former GOP congressman from Georgia who is the Libertarian Party nominee, is saying that John McCain is toast.

Barr said McCain is on his &#8220;farewell tour&#8221; across America because he has no realistic chance of wining the presidential election.

&#8220;The wheels on the Straight Talk Express have come off,&#8221; Barr said in a statement this afternoon. &#8220;Sen McCain&#8217;s mixed and angry message, as well as his support of big-spending policies, have killed any chance McCain may have had to win this election.&#8221;

That means that Republican voters can feel comfortable voting for him, Barr says. &#8220;Now, principled conservatives can vote their conscience instead of voting for a faux-conservative just because he carries the Republican label,&#8221; he added. &#8220;A vote for John McCain is a wasted vote.&#8221;
