Politicians don’t seem to realize, or maybe the word is care, that we have this stuff called advanced technology that records their statements for posterity and endless playback. Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show” crack team of researchers has once again caught Sen. John McCain in a tight spot with regard to the truth—this time in relation to his past and current stance on repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell.” And his wife, Cindy, isn’t spared either after her recent flip-flop on the issue.  —KA

John McCain should have been put out to pasture long ago…

Another poster boy for term limits.

This is like all non issues, being used to cover real issues.  Seems to work well in support of forever (forever is a long time)  stalling, doesn’t it?

What war?

I couldnot agree more with Mr Dillon and want to add to the equation he is about 106 years old.Would his idol Barry Goldwater have become that big a hypocrite?History shows us the answer was no.

Mr. Dillon is right on the money—McCain is a slime pit. Like something form
under a rock.

Meanwhile, Feingold fails in his re-election bid. Wonder if these guys still talk…

I think it’s a very sad state of affairs in our country when John McCain has to spend 20 MILLION DOLLARS just to survive a primary campaign for his Senate seat.

John McCain is the worst kind of political prostitute imaginable.  He had the best reputation possible and everyone looked up to him.  His wife has more money than God and he could have easily walked away from the Senate with the gratitude of the American people.  But he is such a narcissistic asshole that he sold everything to be reelected.  Now he is the laughing stock of the country and his reputation is in the crapper.  And for what?  So he could be in the Senate for another term?  Was it really worth destroying his reputation just so he could be in front of the camera for another 6 years?  I guess that’s how he saw it.  What a sad little man.

Perhaps the saddest thing is that the voters choose not to think of this, and have a
short memory.

Reminds me of the progressive erosion of the principles of Animalism in Orwell’s
Animal Farm.

Of course, this behaviour is not only happening in the GOP.
