There is only one John McCain

By Creature

"It was like going back in time to 2007 in New Hampshire when I used to watch John McCain get very, sort-of, aggressive questions about immigration and he would bat them down, he would tell the racist who asked about our open borders and the secret NAFTA highway that we are all god's children and that we had to respect one another. That McCain came back today and it was good to see him." -- Ana Marie Cox, wishing for one more ride on the tire swing

Dear Ms. Cox:

John McCain is a grown man with free will. He chose his campaign staff. He chose the divisive, despicable, dangerous path his campaign is on. Nobody forced it on him. So please stop telling me there is an "old" John McCain and a "new" John McCain. Fake denouncements notwithstanding, there is only John McCain. That John McCain chose to embrace all things Rove and America will pay the price for it.

Thank you.

Now, please excuse me while I try to convince the riot police to hold only the "new" Creature responsible for throwing that fire bomb into the crowd, not the "old" one.
