I think this is why Senator McCain (I hope I have the neme right; he was on the Daily Show during the RNC) seems likable and agreeable.
He (McCain) was on the Daily show because he wants to be president in 2008 and there are almost no other republicans that could go on Stewarts show to read their party's talking points memo.
McCain isn't much better than GW or Cheney. If you look at his legislative record it's as appalling as any other right wing fuck in congress. The McCain/Feingold bill, for instance, was nothing more than an attempt to cut off financing to the Democratic party. Look at where he stands on Social Issues. He's right winger just like the rest of them. The trap is that people now compare him to GW on the left right scale and forget that he's still "right". If McCain were president you'd still get Anti Choice judges appointed, you'd still have the same neoCon foreign policy. You'd still have massive tax breaks to friends of the Reichpublican party. Etc. etc. etc. You're living in a fantasy world, just like all the people in California who voted for the Terminator.
When you elect Reichpublicans to congress or the executive branch you get their whole party, not just them.
Although, 4 years ago i was pushing John Edwards. I still think he could have beaten Bush in 04. By 08 his time had passed. I'm so proud that the Dems had the courage this time around to support Obama and to support Dean's 50 state strategy. (I was right on that one too) I've been waiting my whole life to see my party grow a set of balls. It finally happened.

I think that now, looking back he might have been a better candidate than Kerry. What would you criticise him for? Beeing cooky? Unlike Kerry, Dean had a solid message on the War. Dean said from the beginning that it was WRONG. That it was a MISTAKE. That it was endangering everything we believe in. He is also a solid progressive/liberal, which really really motivates the left.
Ugh! I'm still pissed off.
