The Not-So-Endangered White RINO*
*Republican In Name Only

WARNING! Harsh language alert!
Everything to everyone. The GOP's answer to Jimmy Carter, ladies and gentlemen... John McCain.

Part-time psychologist, arm-chair theologian, and full-time bullshitter, McCain recently stated on ABC news that he doesn't believe homosexuality is a "defect" or a "sin". McCain said that while he was not in favor of civil unions, he did support some legal recognition for same-sex couples. As far as homosexual marriage is concerned, McCain said "I do not believe gay marriage should be legal."

What? If there is nothing sinful or defective about homosexuality, then why not let them marry? Simple, McCain is trying his damnedest to be everything to everyone. Remember, he's the same guy who named his whose campaign bus in the 2000 Presidential campaign the Straight Talk Express.

Sen. McCain has been criticized by pro-life advocates for an inconsistent approach to life issues. Despite having said in 1999 that he would not support overturning Roe v. Wade since it would result in a return to dangerous back street operations for women, in his interview with ABC on Sunday McCain said he would support returning the abortion debate to the states.

Everything to everyone.

Another example of McCain's hypocrisy during the 2000 campaign, he called the Confederate flag "offensive" and "a symbol of racism and slavery," though he said he could see the other side of the issue as well. Later he waffled clumsily back to the more conservative view, saying: "Some view it as a symbol of slavery. Others view it as a symbol of heritage. Personally, I see the battle flag as a symbol of heritage."

What? Hey, Mr. Straight Talk Express, how about finding a position and sticking to it?

Seems like he is going to start flip-flopping more than Kerry in the last presidential campiagn (At least McCain actually did fought in Vietnam).

He also voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment so once again John McCain is lying and pandering.

War hero, but horrible Senator.

John McCain scares me. I respect his service in Vietnam but I fear that the inner core of the man just aint right and I don't want him within sniffing distance of the Oval Office.
