[FoRK] Challenge for McCain critics

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  
factions.

Go on.  Really.
