  •  I used to respect McCain (16+ / 0-)

    Remember back in 2000 when he was the "straight talk" Republican running against Chimpy McCokeSpoon?  That was just another persona, nothing real, that McCain put on because he thought it would help him.  Just like the right-wing persona he put on vs Obama and the "build the damn fence" persona to get re-elected Senator.

    Despite what he would have the world believe, I think the real McCain is the guy caught up with Charles Keating.  He's a slimeball snake Republican, shedding his skin just like the rest of them when necessary.

    •  I never respected him (6+ / 0-)

      born on third base & thought he hit a triple.

      But I did find the 2000 edition far more charming and entertaining than subsequent ones. He learned from that campaign, and has behaved like a proper Republican ever since.

      "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)

    •  He is just a perpetual grudge holder (5+ / 0-)

      The "straight-talk" McCain from that campaign and the first few years of the bush administration was just his usual McNasty self.  He was never a straight talker or a maverick, he just refused to forgive bush for beating him, same as he refuses to forgive Pres. Obama.  There is no greater sin in his mind then running against him and beating him, that why he tries to make life hell for anyone who dares challenge him.
