  •  I think it's envy. (4+ / 0-)

    And I'm not saying that he's gay. But I don't think he ever wanted to be a warrior. He had to be, because that was his family's "tradition."

    So he sees the prospect of people given the right to be themselves instead of being what others expect them to be, and that makes him envious....and bitter.

    I think the greatest motivation for McCain now is bitterness. Bitterness that he had to live his life to someone else's dictates, bitterness that the Keating scandal make him look a gullible fool, bitterness that a young upstart stole the presidency from him. I think he's desperately trying to feel that his life, as he's lived it, has some meaning....instead of being the life of someone who never quite had the courage to think and act for himself.

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.
