John McCain — who is viewed with deep suspicion by many Republicans and whose primary claim to frontrunner status was “electability” — is seeing his poll numbers tank. He’s old, his support for “the surge” in Iraq has made him less popular, and you get the feeling that a lot of people were just waiting for an excuse to dump him.

In rides “America’s Mayor” to the rescue! Rudy Giuliani might be pro-abortion, pro-gay rights, pro-gun control, and pro-immigration, but GOP primary voters appear to be willing to compromise on a few of their troublesome “principles” if it means they can toss McCain overboard. Most of all, you get the sense that the Republicans really want to WIN and if that means nominating a cross-dressing, twice-divorced adulterer who has said he would give his daughter the money for an abortion and who lived with two gay men and their chihuahua a few years ago, hey just tell them where to sign up.

Only problem is, McCain really wants to win too, and to do so it’s looking more and more like he’s going to have to knock Giuliani down a peg or two. He knows that Giuliani doesn’t just have a couple of skeletons in the closet, he’s got a whole graveyard stuffed in there, so the question becomes: How long before Team McCain decides to start dragging out some of those bones?
