McCain is a fink
Now we hear he's trying to make nice with the worst of the worst, James Dobson.

James Dobson is arguable the most vocal homobigot, anti-sex, fundamentalist religious uthoritarian out there, and here McCain is trying to court his favor.

It must suck to be a Republican candidate, you really have to get down on your knees and kiss the devil's ass for a chance at the nomination.

McCain cannot win without pacifying those jerks, and getting them to the polls. Who can blame him? Better than having a true believer do it!

I can’t imagine McCain making it out of the primaries, no matter how much kissing up he does.

Buck,

To a certain extent I expect kissing up to special interest groups. The problem comes when McCain decides to throw them a bone. Sure, Bush didn't do shit about abortion and his "faith-based charity" program went nowhere, among other things. But he also vetoed ESC funding, and may do so again.

Who knows what McCain might do to pacify them? We don't know. I'd rather see a candidate who's not beholden in the slightest to the fundienuts.

But truth be told, I really don't give a shit whose baby he's kissing this week. The total deal-breaker is that the man backed down on torture, for fuck's sake. The one issue that should have sent him screaming into flashbacks right on the Senate floor, as, unable to distinguish friend from foe, he flew into a subhuman killing frenzy! Graham and Landrieu's ears worn as a necklace! The bourbon-tang of a Kennedy's blood in his mouth! CHARLIE IN THE TREES, CHARLIE EVERYWHERE OH GOD DON'T LET THEM CATCH ME AGAIN

... but no, he caved. The one fucking issue he had absolute moral authority over, and where he should have synpathized with the victims. And he caved, in the most craven, brazen way possible.

Then the Repubs lost big in the next month's elections. I wonder if he felt hollow after that?
