Mr. McCain, Your Wingnuts Are Showing
From Talking Points Memo:
John McCain once called Jerry Falwell an “agent of intolerance.” Now he’s going to be the graduation speaker at Jerry’s Liberty University.
McCain’s run to the right is just revving up. He’ll no doubt make Bill Frist look like a liberal during the Republican primaries, especially if he’s up against Guiliani.
Also: How much you wanna bet that if McCain gets the Rs nomination he’ll ask Joe (“I’m a Democrat, really!”) Lieberman to be his running mate? Or am I just paranoid?
UPDATE: Andrew Sullivan unearthed this McCain quote from six years ago:
“Neither party should be defined by pandering to the outer reaches of American politics and the agents of intolerance, whether they be Louis Farrakhan or Al Sharpton on the left, or Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell on the right.”
