Those unhappy trolls at Conservative Home are getting all dewey eyed over John McCain.
The prospect of an elder statesman going into an election as the candidate of strength and experience is causing many Conservatives to question their rejection of Ken Clarke for Tory leader. David Cameron was keen to re-align himself with Obama as soon as the campaign swung in the senator's favour.
However, for most Conservatives, an inexperienced candidate going into an election with slogans but no policies is not a happy prospect.
And whilst Obama is busy working the stumps and wooing the crowds, their own boy wonder is barely to be seen outside of Westminster and Notting Hill.
No wonder many Tories are lining themselves up for a boot at the tortoise.
