McCain advisor: "We're fucked."

The Carpetbagger Report says it all in this lede:
Maliki’s game-changer; GOP says, ‘We’re f**ked’
Posted July 20th, 2008 at 8:30 am

By any reasonable measure, the debate over U.S. policy towards Iraq changed in a fundamental way yesterday. Just as importantly, the presidential campaign has experienced a game-changing moment, from which John McCain may struggle to recover...

Josh Marshall explained, “Maliki has now handed Obama the trump card of all trump cards with which to parry all of McCain’s attacks.”

Or, as a prominent Republican strategist who occasionally provides advice to the McCain campaign told the Atlantic’s Marc Ambinder, “We’re fucked."

Is there any VP candidate who will make Iraq go away? I don't think so.
