Hitting the campaign trail, McCain isnt just embracing his former nemesis Falwell, hes locking lips with the saccharine pulpit pounder he once called intolerant. He wants to put the past where it belongs because according to John, The worst thing you can do in life, much less politics, is to hold grudges. Thats the worst? Gee, I can think of plenty of things that would make me more ashamed than holding a grudge. For instance, giving a president the authority to wage an illegal war, voting to fund endless war, and, particularly, believing that war is the only choice. For all the righteous certitude, Falwell is singing McCains praises, gushing because Sen. John doesnt support same-sex marriage or a womans right to govern her body. That these two are harmonizing is a song of hypocrisy.
And McCain is glomming onto George Bush like a groupie in love. Supporting Georges neoconservative agenda, the Senator, who once declared Bushs tax cuts a disaster, has voted to make them permanent. Not only is McCain being advised by Bushies, hes also soliticited the aid of Bush fundraisers. It makes you wonder if McCain spends hours in front of a mirror repeating, Being George Bush.
Remember the ugly campaign leading up to Bushs nomination for the 2000 election when Ws hit men hatched so many angles to discredit John McCain, even suggesting that the war heros years of captivity in Viet Nam created a crazy? No more grudges.
Today, I believe hed say, Jesus Christ, because he changed my heart. And if asked about his position, McCain would say, Missionary. But, then, he, Jerry, and George would struggle with whod be on top.
