Inconvenient Truths about John McCain

That's the title of a must-read analysis by a guy named Doug Bandow, over at Here's an excerpt:

Sen. John McCain is a man of physical courage and personal honor. He's also a warmonger, with little concern for those who would die in his military adventures. The Democrats won't say that. But it's the truth.
. . .
Anyone willing to go to war with Iraq, Iran, North Korea, and Serbia is prepared to fight anyone. Most people lean toward peace and believe that only dangerous necessity can justify loosing the dogs of war. Not McCain, who appears to be in permanent "yes" mode. If that famous 3 a.m. phone call came into the McCain White House, he likely would yell "bomb them" into the receiver, then wait until the morning to ask who we had attacked.
There's a lot more -- check it out.

And this Bandow guy? He's gotta be some compsymp radical-islamofascist-enabling liberal, right?

Nope, not quite. He is, among other things, a Robert A. Taft Fellow with the American Conservative Defense Alliance who served as a special assistant to St Ronald Reagan and was a senior policy analyst in the 1980 Reagan for President campaign. I'd say that his conservative credentials are pretty impeccable.

So take that, Grampaw McCain. Everyone else, dig down, buckle up and prepare yourselves for the coming battle between The Empire and the Jedi Knights.

So many conservatives from the Reagan years have been critical of this current generation of so called "conservatives", most notably John Dean, author of Conservatives Without Conscience and Worse Than Watergate. But people who have drunk the kool aid won't even listen to THEM! We'll never change the minds of the "Stepford Cons". All we can do is to encourage THINKING people to get out and VOTE on election day, in VAST numbers. If every person capable of critical thinking actually votes, the Democrats will prevail, the Constitution will prevail, and our Founding Fathers will stop spinning in their graves. Remember them? The people who instead of profiting by their involvement in founding this nation, actually made great financial and personal SACRIFICES to do so, in many cases, losing everything they had. What would they think of Halliburton, Cheney, KBR, Blackwater? THINK!!

Hey mrln, welcome back! As always, you are spot on. It'll be a challenge to get those thinking people out in sufficient numbers to offset the Moron-American voting bloc, but we can do it!

And you, Jenn of the Jungle: "He's nothing but a socialist Dem in Repub clothing"...
Are you fucking insane?

Jenn, did you happen to go and actually READ the linked article? I didn't think so. You're just another troll yapper without a brain.
