McCain to speak to DI creobots today.

Now let's put my bias right out on the table.  Years ago I thought McCain might be cut from a different cloth, and thus worthy of consideration.  Since then I have come to know him as the scum bag, opportunistic poser that he is.  

He preaches creationism (aka "ID") should be a part of public science class and amongst other nutty ideas now believes the state should rule over a woman's reproductive system.

Let's hope his presidential bid goes down like Dimbski's latest carreer as a video artist.

From a Seattle Times Article Some critics of intelligent design called on McCain to cancel his appearance. The Discovery Institute, however, has a lesser role in the event than it has implied on its Web site, which says the institute is "pleased to co-present (McCain's appearance) with CityClub of Seattle and the Seattle World Affairs Council."

The council said it and CityClub are the "co-sponsors" in charge of the event. Council spokesman Hilbren Buys said the institute, one of 10 "co-presenters," is merely helping to promote it -- "sort of hopped on board and wanted this to happen. ... They put it on their Web site with a bit too much credit on their side."


What?  Are they suggesting the DI is being anything less than honest?

Since then


I think you'll find the answer to the nature of McCain in this question:

since WHEN, exactly?

(hint: check when he first started rumbling about running for pres.)

the sad commentary isn't about McCain, per se, but about the state of politics on the right that seems to FORCE candidates to believe they must kow-tow to the extreme religious right in order to garner sufficient support to make it through the primaries.

an ironic twist to this whole thing is that while watching the news last night, i discover that the people most upset with McCain in his own state (Arizona) are...

the right wing fundy nutbags.

In fact, they started and are pusing a recall petition because they think he let them down on "family values" initiatives.

damned if you do...

Same here.  After his blasting of the Falwellians and his castigation  of the republicrat PArty for caving in to them, I thought McCain represented a real hope of taking back the Party from the nutters.

Alas, now I know better.

I still have hope for Bloomberg and Guliani, though.
