We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Hey, you're talking about the man that brought us Campaign Finance Reform and damned near solved the immigration problem with his willingness to cross the aisle, take a hard left turn and lay down. He's gonna keep the A in AGW as long as he thinks it will net him a single vote.
A decent man, a great war hero, and a flake of a U.S. Senator. The first two make for fine human beings, the last means that he should retire and write some books. That said, it only applies to the Republican nomination. Should he get it, then better a flake of a U.S. Senator than one of the three cute petty tyrants running as Democrats.
I voted for McCain in the 2000 California Primary. Never again. I'd sooner sit home than vote for either Huckabee or McCain in November '08 and I'm about as partisan a Republican as you'll find. There are many others who feel the same way.
Just as soon as Fox News called NH for McCain, I was on- line making another contribution to Mitt Romney.
Gotta be a skeptic when it comes to McCain. Campaign finance 'reform', the Keating 5, his equivocating about taxes, etc., etc.I think he'd love to take the AWG stance if he thought he'd net some votes. He does talk a good game, but in the end he seems to believe that what's good for McCain is what's good for the country. I hope I'm wrong because if he's the nominee, he gets my vote.
