You know, I try and give a guy credit for doing the right thing in criticizing Crying John Boehner. And then he has to go and get all Pinochet on us again. What gives?

This time, the good Senator from Arizona, in referring to Moveon's oh so mean advertisement about General Petraeus, publicly opined that members of Moveon "ought to be thrown out of this country."

Ok, Krushchev.

Then he had this to say during a 9/11 event:

"The important thing about Sept. 11 is that it not be repeated," McCain told reporters after the event. "And if we leave Iraq, then it will be repeated."

Yup, there he goes again. Hey Einstein, perhaps you should look at NIE or listen to virtually every non-Neocon compromised foreign policy expert who say that this ill-conceived and tragic war in Iraq has stopped us from defeating the actual terrorists who want to come here and kill us.

Finally, there is the honorable John McCain, the man who made sure everone knew he condemned negative campaigns and in particular the Swift Boat liars. Yeah, he's now going around campaigning with one of their most public members.

Front page in today's Washington Post.  Basically, infighting at the top of the campaign that McCain didn't really take seriously at first, just festered until the whole thing blew up. 

Geez, and I thought this only happened in Democratic campaigns.

He stands with his waders submerged in mud above the article title "Prisoner of Conscience," clad in beat up old bluejeans, a blue denim shirt under a green hunting vest, a black baseball cap on his head.  To his left is a fishing pole, perched on a rock pointing away; at his feet his loyal springer spaniel looks with master directly into the camera.  He is everyman.  He is Republican Senator John McCain, a.k.a. Straight Talkin’ McCain, and he is running for president.
In the opening paragraphs of “Prisoner” the writer says of his subject:  "In an age of pre-fab, blow-dried, plasticized politicians, McCain remains palpably, pungently human."  The burning question of the 10,000-word love letter in February’s Vanity Fair is:  does John McCain possess the guile necessary to be a successful candidate?  And would McCain even want the presidency if he has to sell his soul to get it?

Throughout his 24 years in Congress, McCain has gained a reputation for speaking his mind, consequences be damned, often in opposition to the Republican Party line of the moment.  McCain has bucked the GOP - sometimes loudly - on gun show loopholes, lobbying reform, HMO reform, campaign finance reform, stem cell research, climate change, gay marriage, amnesty for illegal immigrants, seeking compensation from tobacco companies and upholding the filibuster.  In a party long run with and on authoritarian discipline, this is a novelty that the press can’t get enough of.
