I voted for a John McCain once, a'way back in the 2000 primary. Good man, war hero, scrappy senator, hewed his own line, and all that. Shoulda been slam dunk. The poor guy never stood a chance, tho', against the Atwater-styled Rove smear-machine. They slapped that old war horse around like a $2 whore. It was a sad sight to witness. You'd think there might have been a huge national back-lash at such behavior, but politics does strange things to people's "principles".<quoted text>'
Well....he wasn't George Bush, and he wasn't John McCain, and he wasn't Mittens Romney. Hmmm.....I'm pretty sure there's a common denominator here, but I can't quite grasp it.
Then there was a John McCain that ran for President in 2008 - same name, totally different guy. Sounded the same sometimes, but the walk didn't match the talk. Light-years sadder than the guy before.
