Senator John McCain (D?)

Posted by Ryan on February 1, 2008

Just to stir up the pot, Drudge dug up this article from The Hill back in 2007 that tests McCain’s “Republican” credentials, especially in lieu of his new Super Tuesday ad.  I remember back shortly after Jumpin’ Jim Jeffords left the party back in 2001, that the Dems were praying for a McCain defection as well.  They approached Lincoln Chafee (big shock there!) as well, but apparently McCain’s people actually approached the Dems for talks! 

The article recalls:

“Daschle said that throughout April and May of 2001, he and McCain ‘had meetings and conversations on the floor and in his office, I think in mine as well, about how we would do it, what the conditions would be. We talked about committees and his seniority … [A lot of issues] were on the table.'”

At the end of the day, McCain didn’t jump, but this doesn’t help him convince conservatives about anything.

Fake Edwards Fake Endorses McCain

Posted by Mike on February 1, 2008

Well sort of.  Can a fake endorsement of a fake Republican become a real one if the candidate who gives it is also a fake?   Sometimes there is a great deal of truth in satire.
