First Sen. John McCain started kissing Bush's ass. Now, he is sucking up to right wing zealots. My-oh-my, the soul-selling lengths some people will go to in order to win the presidency.
The politician who fancies himself an independent thinker, has agreed to be the graduation speaker at the Rev. Jerry Falwell's Liberty University on May 13.
"John McCain has embarked on a dangerous policy of appeasement that coddles the anti-gay base of the Republican Party," said Eric Stern, executive director of the National Stonewall Democrats. "No Republican can win their party's presidential nomination without the institutional backing of Republican power-brokers like Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson. Over the past few months, we have seen John McCain back anti-marriage amendments, stump for anti-gay activists running for elected office and demonstrate his dependence on social conservatives," Stern said.
In his last presidential run, McCain gained a reputation for straight talk. In 2008, he may be speaking in tongues, before his campaign is over. It seems McCain will do and say anything to get his party's nomination. So much for McCain presenting himself as a different kind of politician.
Well you nailed this one Wayne. McCain has become a clone.
I first noticed it last summer when he endorsed the 'marriage' amendment in AZ - which is not ONLY an anti-gay amendment, it is punitive towards all unmarried couples in Arizona and their dependents. He has received scathing letters from me and my loved ones about it, but the reply is that the state of AZ has the right to solidify the institution of marriage "as residents see fit." In other words, a popularity vote is okay, despite that he knows anti-gay animus is going to end up causing voters to roll back health insurance protection for thousands of residents AND their dependent children, among other things.
I suppose the political reality is that McCain can't get the endorsements he needs without doing this. But it's a crying shame nonetheless.
He showed his true character when rove&bush smeared him in the primaries and said his 'wife had a black lovechild' when in fact the child was adopted and from India. He did nothing to defend their honor and in fact continues to play ball with those two scumbags.
