The Real McCain

I'm sorry the website "The Real McCain" doesn't know the difference between "less" and "fewer," but I suppose that is a pathetically minor point compared to what's at stake in the 2008 election.

If you're attracted by McCain's maverick stances, if you've always been a little tempted to jump the Democratic ship if the Republicans could come up with a seemingly respectable candidate of the center, take heed: NOW IS NOT THE TIME!

Thank you, Randall, for the link to the Real McCain site in your great post Friday -- but I'd love to see you change your endorsement logo.

Of course, nobody is perfect, especially in the world of politics. But anyone who has been criticizing the Iraq war for five years and doesn't take a stand for the candidate most likely to get us out of the mess is, in my opinion, part of the problem.

My vote goes to the Democratic nominee, whomever it is. It'll likely be your guy, don't worry. Mine is long gone.

I conclude that yours was Richardson. He was my dad's too...maybe we'll be seeing him as VP?

I can only think of one decent reason to vote for McCain, and it's not the "maverick" stuff. It's the idea that if Barack should lead in the pledged delegate count, and the Democratic establishment nevertheless gives the election to Hillary, a McCain vote would help throw the Party into enough chaos that significant changes would have to be made.

Just look at the way the Democratic Party has handled the Iraq War from the very beginning. Clearly, some changes are needed.
