John McCain A Straight Shooter?

Recently that is true ONLY if the backside he is smooching is directly in front of his face. Great Kokopilli John have you taken a look at the sort of people you are pandering too.

First was the great rapprochement with the Shrub. Remember him John, the guy whose campaign claimed you were a coward and may have succumbed to NVA torture. The guy whose campaign insulted your wife and adopted c
Take a look
on the right John. Do remember the man in that photo?

Back in the 1980's when you were questioned for your part in the Keating Five,
you remember the banking scandal, that you refer to as the asterisk on your career.

Instead of becoming a recluse in the back seats of the Senate you have turned around and have been a campaigner along with Russ Feingold (D-WI) to have real campaign finance reform.

Conversely you carried water for Shrub and Turd Blossom during the 2004 campaign. I asked myself how could this man of integrity shake hands with the man whose campaign spread rumors that are above the viciousness of your typical Southern campaign?

Then I realized what was I really asking: Is this truly a man of integrity?

As the world watched the Gulf Coast of the United States become a morass of water, oil, chemicals, and human blood we were treated to this. You and Shrub sharing a birthday cake. Isn't that sweet.

Maybe those in the middle and left were wrong all these years. Maybe what you really are is just desperate to be President, so desperate that you will hitch your wagon to the nag that dragged you through the mud. Maybe we thought too much of you as Bill Scher points out in his article in the Huffington Post:
"In turn, we are better able to see through McCain's shtick: appeal to Dems and independents with candor (like yesterday on Meet The Press, when he chided Paul Wolfowitz for claiming the war would pay for itself with Iraqi oil), and with a few liberal positions such as campaign finance reform, higher fuel efficiency standards and opposition to torture."
This would go along way to proving Scher's assertion:
From The Washington Post:
Potential presidential candidate John McCain says he no longer considers evangelist Jerry Falwell to be one of the "agents of intolerance" that he criticized during a previous White House run.

The Republican senator from Arizona will be the commencement speaker in May at Liberty University, the Lynchburg, Va., institution that Falwell founded in 1971.....

...In 2000, as he sought the Republican nomination that eventually went to George W. Bush, McCain said: "Neither party should be defined by pandering to the outer reaches of American politics and the agents of intolerance, whether they be Louis Farrakhan or Al Sharpton on the left or Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell on the right."
Well John I guess you have changed that opinion as well; just in time, coincidently, for the run-up to primary season. Just a question John, whose backside does it take less pride to kiss?
