McCain's Fall from Grace?

From the Huffington Post:

At a dinner party in Los Angeles not long after the 2000 election, John McCain admitted to me that he hadn't voted for George Bush. It shows how far McCain has fallen since then in his hunger for the presidency -- and is emblematic of the independence and maverick spirit that drew so many in the media, including me, to him. But the John McCain the media fell in love with in 2000 isn't on the ballot in 2008. McCain's fall has been Shakespearean -- but a large portion of the electorate hasn't noticed. How else to explain The 28/48 Disconnect -- wherein only a die-hard 28 percent of voters still approve of Bush, but 48 percent say they'd vote for McCain, who is running to give us a third Bush term.

I can't get the Huggy-Bear picture out of my mind when ever I think of McCain... you know, the one where he looks like a big parasite...

The Arizonans I know are not fooled. They KNOW he's swallowed the Kool-Aid.

I'm not a big fan of McCain but I'd vote for him a thousand times before swallowing the messiah's message of hope. At least McCain will TRY to control spending and not create a quasi-socialist state (more so than we already have). I shudder at the thought of an Obama (or Hillary) presidency. I only get goosebumps at the thought of a McCain presidency. That makes the choice for me.
