For the birds
from Miya Shay.
Many conservative bloggers and other far-right loons have just abandoned John McCain, again. Will they come back this summer or by November? I love the ending of the Fire Dog Lake link - there is video of McCain in 2000 saying he would be too old to run for President in 2008. Can we say this loon just forgot he said that?
Finally, why is the media and conservatives repeating the discredited bird-brained charge that Obama is the most liberal member of the Senate? He is only the most liberal if your definition of liberal is almost solely based on being against corruption and conflicts of interest. Are Republicans saying that is what they meant by liberal all along? The National Journal makes up a voting record scorecard each election to always brand the Democratic presidential nominee as the most liberal.
