I'm an even bigger flip-flopper than he is. I used to want him to be president... now I don't.
The way I see it, better for them to show their true colors PRIOR to the election.
My opposition to McCain is more sinister, I'm afraid, and I'm truly ashamed.
I don't know, perhaps I've seen too many movies, but he was a POW in North Vietnam. That's a little too Manchurian Candidate/The Dead Zone for my comfort.
But you're right, Erica....he does backbend way too much kissing some pretty sorry anuses. I scratched him off my list when he was nearly French-kissing Bush on the podium at the 2000 Republican Convention.
Federalist. Yeah, right. He started out as a Goldwater conservative, small-l libertarian and States Rights. Now he's a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Kristian-Kook Bushie Big Government conservative. The odd thing is, I think the tide has turned against that sort of thing.
The tide definitely turned for me when he caved to Bush on torture. Of all people. He WAS TORTURED. He knows it's wrong more than anyone, and he knows WHY it's wrong.
A tragic career end; more fallout from the collapse of Republicanism.
Why does Slog post topics twice so often?
Even though McCain is showing his stripes as a hard right conservative, the corporate media still loves him and promotes him as an "independent maverick." Getting his hypocracy out to the general public that doesn't read Daily Kos or Democratic Underground will be a hard battle.
Has Josh scraped his McCain bumpersticker off his car yet? Yeesh...
I agree with Monkey.
Thanks, Erica, for finally writing something that I agree with entirely.
Agree with 8.
McCain stands out because in the *big tent* Republican Party a junior asswipe such as Giuliani has no shot in getting elected. To think otherwise would be to turn Rovian theory on its head.
McCain is an opportunist and a chump. His constantly changing positions on issues will not hold up to scrutiny, even among the more easily-manipulated segments of the Republican party.
Okay, so Allen's out, Guiliani's hopes are dying, and McCain is morphing into Bush so fast I'm surprised he hasn't taken up a coke habit and binge drinking. Who the hell is gonna end up with the nod now that the front runners are dying off?
@2 - I completely agree. His speech at the 2002 RNC broke my heart - I thought he was a peacemaker, and I loved that he was an environmentalist, and fiscally responsible, and got along with people from both parties ... but there's absolutely no way that man likes Bush after what he did to him during the primaries. He looked us in the face and lied. People who want to be politicians should be automatically disqualified from the running (I can't remember who said that first).
Gitai - I think their frontrunner right now must be Sam Brownback, whose motto is, "building that bridge back to the day of Cotton Mather"!
If he kept presenting a strong middle ground the Republican party would not elect him as their front-runner for the 2008 election. Once he wins that seat he's free to lean back to the middle and attempt to win back his former supporters.
Brownback! Brownback! Yes! Almost as good a GOP candidate as George "Macaca" Allen or Trent "White Citizens Council" Lott. PLEASE nominate Brownback, GOP!
