McCain-- The Myth Is Back. Our msm remains WILLFULLY INSANE.


The Myth Is Back!
01/23/2009 by Peter Hart

Sometimes you don't need to read more than a headline. Take today's Washington Post:

Senate Gets Reacquainted With McCain the Maverick

OK, let's read just a bit:

Two and a half months removed from his defeat in the race for the presidency, colleagues say, McCain bears more resemblance to the unpredictable and frequently bipartisan lawmaker they have served with for decades than the man who ran an often scathing campaign against Barack Obama.

(...)

It's good to know that this media-manufactured myth is back--before we had time to miss it.

Old media loyalties die HARD.

Dear Wapo: Obama WON.

1. Dear WaPo - Mavericky McCain voted 92% with W
so he's a pretty tame little mavericky.

3. These people are so predictable. And I hope that Obama puts McCain
in his place right away. Not let this shit get out of hand.

5. Our M$M is a grotesque and pathetic joke, with a tiny handful of exceptions

6. Hmm... Maverick? I don't see him standing with "O" on this stimulus thing and do what's right.
