McCain: liar? Flip-flopper? Or just a panderer?
Or all three? Daily Kos has the comparison of the McCain position on Roe v. Wade in his previous campaign (he was strictly pro-choice) to his position now that he's whipped out the knee-pads for the fundamentalists on the right.

"I do not support Roe versus Wade. It should be overturned," the Arizona senator told about 800 people in South Carolina, one of the early voting states.

McCain also vowed that if elected, he would appoint judges who "strictly interpret the Constitution of the United States and do not legislate from the bench."

Between this and the McCain/Bush escalation plan, who is going to be left voting for this guy? The fundies don't really trust him, and I doubt he's changed such a fundamental opinion for anything but political expedience. The only question is, which political expedience? The one in which he was running against the fundamentalist choice? Or the current one in which he's trying to be the fundamentalist choice? Who in their right mind, on either ideological divide could trust this guy?
