What Else Would You Expect . . . . 

. . . from a man who became an American war hero, and got elected to the Senate, by exploiting his capture during a bombing raid upon a North Vietnamese light bulb factory?

So, we shouldn't be surprised at John McCain's impersonation of George Wallace when he insisted that MoveON.org participants ought to be thrown out of this country, as the link above to Left I on the News indicates, he has always been a man who celebrates the use of violence against defenseless people to achieve the imperial ends of the US. It is difficult, if not impossible, to name a prominent American political figure who has advocated the use of military force as frequently, and as intensely, as John McCain.

In other words, a loathsome individual, and, while I don't pay much attention to the presidential campaign, the self-destruction of John McCain has truly been a joy to behold. The three most dangerous presidential candidates are McCain, Clinton and Giuliani, and, at least we can rest easily knowing that McCain is not going to be entering the Oval Office in January 2009. He's so politically tone deaf that he doesn't even recognize that MoveON.org rationalizes the continued occupation of Iraq through specious, carefully contrived opposition.
