The Great McCain Sellout of 2010 (cont'd)

Rightly, conservatives aren't buying this shit. Conservatives like Hot Air's Allahpundit:

I don't know what to say, guys. I'm genuinely speechless. Pandering is one thing, shameless careerist pandering is something else, and then there's John "Goddamned Fence" McCain marching along the border in a badass Navy baseball cap looking like he could choke out a coyote with his bare hands. And you know what? If he thought he'd get a few points' bounce from it, I bet he'd do it too. How long before he's spotted on the trail wearing a "Viva Los 1070" t-shirt?

At this point, McCain will apparently do anything and say anything in his pathetic attempt to make himself over as a die-hard right-wing conservative. Remember, he now says he was never a maverick, in direct contradiction of the historical record.

I never bought into the whole "maverick" thing. It was always so very faux, so very manufactured. For the most part, he's always been a loyal conservative Republican, a few mavericky positions notwithstanding. I even respected his admirable position on immigration, which, for a Republican, was generally quite fair and sensible, not to mention humane.

But now? Well, just take a look at the ad. It's embarrassingly appalling.
