the truth about John McCain

Ah, there you are. Here's a fine quote, though there are many:

"McCain says his life changed while he was in Vietnam, and he is now a different man," Lt. Col. Dramesi says today. "But he's still the undisciplined, spoiled brat that he was when he went in."

This is a must-read for anyone who still believes McCain is "maverick-ey," honorable, or even likable. He's just another "failing upwards" selfish bastard who never grew up, much like the last guy the Republicans served up.

Thanks for the tip, terriblyfamous.

Don't forget, folks, that the Republican party itself says that character is important. Uh-huh, this man's a winner on that count.

Spread the word.

Best,
Chris

Yeah *nodding vigorously*
Not a maverick, at all. I didn't need _Rolling Stone_ to confirm it.

I've received my advance ballot, and I won't filling in the oval next to his name.

I used to buy the hype, at least back when he ran against Bush Jr. But the truth is coming out now, and hooray for that.

You pulled one of the best quotes there. His "transformation" after the Keating scandal was nothing more than calculated, self-serving politicking. Career advancement.

When putting together this post, I discovered countless excellent quotes. This one just struck me as the best at supplying the article's abstract.

He's such an ass; this is funny, in a dark way, considering that his party has become all about "character." Yeah, he's a character, all right.
