Why McCain’s Like Gollum

Posted by Ryan on April 1, 2007

He just doesn’t know what party he’s supposed to be in! If he’s a tried-and-true Republican who should be our next nominee for President, why all this talk about him possibly leaving the party in 2001 and 2004 resurfacing and McCain giving us dodgy answers?

Think about this: as liberal as Giuliani is, his Republican loyalties have never been truly questioned. As flip-floppy as Romney was, his party loyalty has never been seriously in question either. Same deal with Gingrich, Thompson, Huckabee, Brownback, Hunter, Tancredo, etc. Yet, with McCain you never know if you’re going to get: Gollum ripping his party, having even once entertained the idea of running with John F’in Kerry, or Smeagol playing nice and loyal, dodging the fact that he was ever Gollum at all.
