Keen on McCain

`He's got to not just sort of placate among issues because in many cases, the problems he has with the right are not as much issues-based as they're based on a sense that conservatives have that John McCain doesn't like them, hasn't liked them, and would like them to go somewhere else.''
That would be my take too.

All in favour?

McCain just scored a point in my book! :-D

It'd be perfect if he led them all offstage, and then locked the door behind him.

Not a McCain fan. As far as I can tell, most of his straight talk maverick image is due to two things: a) he boozes and schmoozes journalists (a malleable bunch), and b) movement conservatives call him a left deviationist.

In a saner political era, he'd be considered a typical far right Republican from Arizona. Not as principled as Barry Goldwater, not as crazy as Evan Mecham.

Of course, we're in year eight of crazy, so.
