John McCain: Moral Sell-Out

He went through unspeakable suffering when he was a prisoner of war. He felt the depths of the inhumanity of which our species is capable. If there is ANY man in America who should be working to stop our government from using torture on suspects, it is John McCain. So what did he do today? He voted to allow it.

This isn't the first time he's caved on this issue. (Read this; it will shock the hell out of you.) But it's a particularly craven sell-out, inasmuch as McCain is simply trying to curry favor among the knuckle-dragging Neanderthals who comprise the pro-torture "base" of the Republican Party, people who have no idea what this country is about and, moreover, don't give a damn. McCain wants to be a hero to these lowlifes. That's why he is betraying his own deepest principles.

Gee, John, maybe Ann Coulter will like you now.
