The Right Lies - I just love reading Andrew Sullilvan swoon over Republicans like John McCain:

I just love reading Andrew Sullilvan swoon over Republicans like John McCain:


THE EVIL EMPIRE: Now, Cheney and Rumsfeld have to dismiss Vladimir Bukovsky on the central matter of what torture does to a country. Thank God for McCain.


And while I group McCain as one of the two Republican Senators whose every word I don't assume to be a lie (Chuck Hagel being the other), his support of George Bush has been a big part of the reason Bush is still President and gotten away with his deceitful campaign tactics for so long (similar to Tony Blair being responsible for the veneer of international legitimacy when invading Iraq). And while the McCain-Feingold act is no doubt the reason for sites like Daily Kos's success, and the pending Democratic takeover of the Congress in 2006, its hard on reflection to not believe any genuine commitment to common sense progressive politics was probably insisted on by Feingold, or only to serve McCain's own political aims: after all he doesn't have Bush's name and therefore his blind corporate support...
