Offering truth beyond the mere black and white.
"Pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will." -- Antonio Gramsci "The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness." -- John Kenneth Galbraith "The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts." -- Bertrand Russell

McCain's candidacy has reached the laughable stage. He's now making statements that are untrue -- and then denying he said them a day later. His implosion is occurring faster than that of the subprime lending industry.
The scandals just keep piling up. In addition to the prosecutor purge, there's the tobacco settlement meddling, the use of the GSA for political purposes, and the latest FBI scandal. Isn't it wonderful to see GW come through on his promise to restore honor and integrity to the White House?
Hugh Hewitt had on Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) and regarding the recent Iraq bill, out of one side of his mouth Coburn said he respected fellow Republican senator Gordon Smith's decision to vote for the Dem-led legislation. Yet seconds later Coburn spoke out of the other side of his mouth and said the bill would jeopardize our troops and all but said voting for the bill was unconscionable. And we're to take his views seriously? By voicing respect for a fellow Republican's choice (but saying nothing about the many Dems making the same choice) and then also condemning that choice -- the bottom line is it's all about partisan politics.
Don't you just love the way Republicans are now so incensed by pork earmarks? Where was this anger when they were breaking spending records for the last several years with this waste?
