Editorial of the day

In "The Beginning of the Demonization of John McCain", John McIntyre makes some good points about John McCain. One thing I had not realized:

"The bottom line is that Mr. McCain isn't a moderate; he's a man of the hard right. How far right? A statistical analysis of Mr. McCain's recent voting record, available at, ranks him as the Senate's third most conservative member. .....

He isn't a moderate. Mr. McCain's policy positions and Senate votes don't just place him at the right end of America's political spectrum; they place him in the right wing of the Republican Party.

The other point McIntyre makes is about how the Media are now starting to demonize McCain, which only stands to help him with the Republican base. The Media may be shooting themselves in the foot with this one. But this would NOT be the first time they did that.
