Desperate Measures For Desperate Times: McCain Panders To Bush's Base

Winter Patriot

Here is one of the biggest differences between the parties, in my view, and it's one of style: Democrats sometimes tell the truth, especially when they're talking about Republicans. But Republicans never tell the truth about anything, even -- especially! -- about the Democrats.

None of this is news; more than 50 years ago, in the midst of another rancid and rancorous campaign, Adlai Stevenson offered a solution to the animosity, saying if the Republicans would stop lying about the Democrats, the Democrats would stop telling the truth about the Republicans.

With the failure of the Republican party to nominate a candidate who can even pretend to be level-headed, it's going to take a massive hack to deliver the proper result in this election. The inevitable backlash will be dealt with -- but the wealthy have to be onside. And McCain is doing his insane best to make sure they are.

John McCain: Rock Star

John McCain: I cry regularly.
Couric: You do?
McCain: Aw, yeah. You know, I'm very sentimental.


Reagan Appointee and (Recent) McCain Adviser Charles Fried Supports Obama

Charles Fried, a professor at Harvard Law School, has long been one of the most important conservative thinkers in the United States. Under President Reagan, he served, with great distinction, as Solicitor General of the United States. Since then, he has been prominently associated with several Republican leaders and candidates, most recently John McCain, for whom he expressed his enthusiastic support in January.

This week, Fried announced that he has voted for Obama-Biden by absentee ballot. In his letter to Trevor Potter, the General Counsel to the McCain-Palin campaign, he asked that his name be removed from the several campaign-related committees on which he serves. In that letter, he said that chief among the reasons for his decision "is the choice of Sarah Palin at a time of deep national crisis."

Fried is exceptionally thoughtful and principled; his vote for Obama is especially noteworthy.

  1. JOHN ELWAY! It Figures!!

    Long ago and far away, I used to be a football fan. John Elway played a big role in changing that.

    According to a story in The Sporting News (to which I subscribed at the time), Elway once lost a briefcase. It was found by the side of the highway just outside Denver by a Broncos fan who checked to see who owned it. He knew where Elway lived so he drove there to deliver the briefcase ... and when he arrived at Elway's place he was promptly mauled by Elway's dogs.

    The story was in the paper because the fan was in the process of suing Elway for his medical expenses.

    I don't think I have to tell you what I would do if my dogs mauled somebody who tried to do me a favor.

    Nor do I have to tell you how unsurprising it is that John Elway supports John McCain.
