43. The teensy list of "mitigating factors" shortens...
Mitigating as in, "Yes, he's a weasle and I'd never vote for him against any Democrat under any circumstances, but at least..."

I used to be able to say "...but at least McCain managed to upset Fundies in 2000." Well, that last little "at least" is, effectively, no more.

You just know that right-wing "Christians" will line up to support McCain if he's the Gooper nominee. They would've anyway, but now they've got cover to do so.
