John McCain: Liar, liar, pants on fire

John McCain is a big fat liar. It’s sad how someone who has been so widely admired can tell such a whopper. McCain told Newsweek, “I never considered myself a maverick.”

No, except for his autobiographical Worth the Fighting For: The Education of an American Maverick, and the Heroes Who Inspired Him. And except for all his campaign ads calling himself and Sarah Palin mavericks. And thousands of times during the 2008 campaign.

McCain is in  the fight of his Senate career: J. D. Hayworth is mounting a serious challenge for the Republican nomination, and the outcome is in doubt. To increase his chances against a challenge from the right McCain seems to have decided he needed to run away from his past and from his self-identification as a maverick.

Sad. And revolting.

    Oh, I don’t know if I’m supposed to have laughed but I laughed my head off at your opening line, Bob. The “whopper” line was pretty funny too. I’m mean, really, what else are we to do but laugh? But as you said it is very very sad that someone who once had such honor and distinction could reduce himself to such shameful behavior. Actually, I don’t think I can ever forgive him for his selfishness in choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate.

    Yeah, the Palin selection brought him down for me. But that’s what a maverick does–the unexpected, the irresponsible.

  3. Judith Ellis Says:

    But he’s not a maverick. LOL!
