‘Daily Show’: Say Anything

What happened to that “maverick” John McCain? Wait ... he’s not really a maverick? Says who? Oh. As Jon Stewart points out in this “Daily Show” clip, McCain has changed his tune on more than just the maverick thing—much more.

McCain Defiant in Ohio

What is it with politicians and the poetics of town names? John McCain is launching his electoral last stand in a place called, seriously, Defiance, Ohio. The rough ‘n’ tumblin’, dissident, anti-status-quo Republican candidate for president is following in the footsteps of Barack Obama, who campaigned in Unity, N.H., with Hillary Clinton after a barbed primary.

John McCain Doesn’t Agree With the Polls

And neither would you, if you were him. He’s a maverick, after all. Just because a majority of Americans don’t want him to be president doesn’t mean ... oh.

The McCain Ship Drifts in a Tide

Probably, John McCain and Sarah Palin will lose this election. Certainly, they deserve to. With a campaign designed more to play on insecurities than promote ideas, McCain and Palin have practically framed Barack Obama’s “closing argument” for him.

McCain and Behar

‘View’ Host to McCain: You’re Not a Maverick

John McCain may have gotten more than he bargained for when he sat down on a comfy couch with the ladies of “The View” Friday morning, only to be cornered by Joy Behar about whether or not he really lives up to his prized “maverick” rep anymore. In response, McCain challenged Behar, along with others who have posed the same question, to tell him exactly how he’s changed.

Fact-Checking McCain’s ‘Alaska Maverick’ Ad

With all the spin and rumor-mongering going on this election season, it’s a good thing there’s FactCheck.org to do some much-needed investigation, because those inflated claims and scurrilous smears only work when voters don’t do their homework.

No Maverick

Maverick? Not So Much

With its latest ad, “No Maverick,” Barack Obama’s team takes aim at John McCain’s self-styled rabble-rousin’ outsider image, offering a few examples of why the “maverick” line doesn’t work for the Arizona senator or his new sidekick from Alaska.

Welch

McCain the Neocon

John McCain has made much of his reputation as a “maverick,” but, as Reason magazine’s Matt Welch lays out in this clip, McCain the Neocon has emerged as the Republican presidential nominee’s dominant political persona and the one he’ll take into the White House if he wins.

McCain the Maverick? Not So Fast

In the battle to define John McCain, the man himself would have you call him “the original maverick.” Barack Obama, meanwhile, says McCain is running for George W. Bush’s third term. This identity struggle could determine the outcome of the election.

McCain and the Media: A Love Story?

The McLaughlin Group takes a look at why, as John McLaughlin claims, Sen. John McCain is “emerging upward”—at least in terms of the press’ treatment of the Republican “maverick,” whom one media source praised for his “zealous, unbending beliefs,” even as another touted his willingness to thumb his nose at ultraconservatives and compromise when necessary. Pat Buchanan, however, is adamant that the McCain “love affair is over.”
