John McCain live on KOA this morning

Big John.

Republican presidential nominee John McCain may have given up hope of winning in Michigan, but he's still feeling good -- or at least as good as a politician sliding in the polls can -- about his chances in Colorado. Hence, his decision to gab live on KOA/850 AM this morning. Listeners are encouraged to send instant-message questions for hosts Steffan Tubbs and April Zesbaugh to pose beginning at around the time this blog publishes. I know I'm going to ask if he'll sing an encore version of his hit song, "Bomb Iran."

McCain is scheduled to appear at 8:15 a.m. Other details can be found in the press release accessible after the jump. -- Michael Roberts
