If John McCain were a woman, the pundits would incessantly discuss his unseemly ambition, his lust for power, his cold, calculating willingness to say and do whatever it takes, to compromise any principle, in order to win. Maureen Dowd would have still one more muse to cheer up her sad little existence. In any case, McCain is a man and so such traits are barely noticed, and if they are, they are treated as positives for the most part.
Not by all, however. Billmon does a good job of shining a light on the real McCain, and it ain't pretty. Yeah, I said "billmon." He's back - sort of, and for how long I can't say. So get 'em while he's hot.
