I’m at a loss. So I’m putting forth the question (questions) in this blog. For those of you supporting McCain I ask: Who IS McCain? Are you supporting the McCain of 2008? Or the McCain of 2000? Or Sarah Palin?
I’m a Democrat based on the issues, so it’s unlikely that McCain would have gotten my vote anyway. But he certainly was much more appealing, and believable as a maverick, back in 2000. He’s not that guy now. And if he is, how would we know? It’s certainly not evident in his pick of a running mate. I’ve heard all the rhetoric and I’m still not buying Palin as a maverick. That’s part of why I found this column interesting.
Let me know what you think!
