You know, the really insane thing about all this "McCain is Bush"
noise that's going around is that, really, there was not a *single*
credible candidate that the GOP *could* have put up that is *less*
like Bush and *more* acceptable to the moderate middle. Going into
this thing knowing that loathing of the current administration was
reaching epic levels and unlikely to die down, the more pragmatic
party apparatchik engineered McCain's nomination knowing that of any
legitimate candidate he alone had the best shot --- and they did this
despite the spasmodic and ultimately self-defeating machinations of
the die-hard Bush partisans.
Don't believe me? Name one; name a senator or state governor who has
the history of conflict, animosity, and antagonism with the Bush
Go on. Really.
