Once Upon a Time, I Actually Liked John McCain


Whatever happened to the guy who ran for president in 2000?

yeah, i used to like him too--i even put up with him endorsing Bush in 2004, because i figured it was simply impossible for him not to.

but he's so disingenuous now that i can't stand to listen to him. same goes for those two morons he has speaking for him, phil "its all in your mind" gramm, and carly "let 'em eat cake" fiorina.

ugh.
