McCain - 61 Flip-Flops and Counting

McCain argues that flip-flops are an example of a political leader who can't be trusted -- so he might as well drop out of the race.

Steve Benen of The Carpetbagger Report has a 61 item list with links of McCain's flip-flops. I have noticed even the media is now expecting that when McCain is challenged on anything whatever he says is probably inaccurate. He just pulls stuff out of his ass.

The 61 flip-flops does not include McCain's support for the surge where McCain has been semantically challenged and it is difficult to determine what he really meant at the time. Maybe we should just leave it at his January 2007 address at the American Enterprise Institute where he said “the worst of all worlds would be a small, short surge of U.S. forces.” McCain was arguing for a large, long escalation, not a surge. Is this a flip-flop when he says he was always for the surge?
