McCain and his far-right cronies are getting more cynical, more out of touch and more nutty by the day, are they not?
Of late he's been positioning himself as an "everyman", or a "maverick", yet he can't even keep track of how many houses he owns. He's walked in lockstep with the Bushies, policy-wise, for the last eight disastrous years; yet he fancies himself an agent of change??
And now he's made an alarmingly rash and whimsical choice of running mate in Sarah Palin, a proud proponent of God, Guns and the sesession of her home state of Alaska. She's also an apologist for the Iraq war (pretty unforgivable at this late date) and has zero experience in foreign policy. This woman could be our president, people. Be afraid, be very afraid.
