Dishonorable John McCain

From Joe Klein:

A few months ago, I wrote that John McCain was an honorable man and he would run an honorable campaign. I was wrong. I used to think, as David Ignatius does, that McCain's true voice was humble and moderate, but now I'm beginning to think his Senate colleagues may be right about his temperament.
Remember Senator Cochran's view of McCain: "The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine...He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me." Klein writes, "The erratic nature of McCain's campaign seems to be confirming that judgment."

Indeed. This country made an enormous error in giving power to George W. Bush, with all his dishonesty, corruption, and ignorance. We'll be paying for that for the foreseeable future. Right now, though, we're either on the edge of doing it again (the popular definition of insanity), and for some unknown reason the media is cheerleading for that option, or getting it right. We need someone who will bring change, a fresh perspective, and intelligence to the office of president.

John McCain promises (threatens) to continue the failed policies of Bush. There's no way that should happen.
