It’s not only the flip flops in position. Even though McCain is trying to reclaim “flip-flop” as a right-wing description of any and all Democratic candidates, he himself is the king of flip-flops. It’s not just a matter of analyzing and deciding a position based on current facts and issues—unless you consider “pandering to special interest groups” to be an important issue.
But jeez, do we want a President who has no idea where he stands on any of the issues? Do we need another puppet of Karl Rove?
