If GWB is the devil, then McCain is the devil in disguise.
Getting a lot of sympathy for having been tortured, people think McCain should have a good perspective on torture. And he might, but it appears that he is willing to use this perception to his and the Republican advantage.

When GWB made it crystal clear that he wanted no restrictions on his ability to torture, John McCain and others made a big show of disagreeing. Hey, who says the Republicans are all in lock step. Look, they are working on a compromise. And John McCain is involved, certainly the "compromise" will include some reason or maybe even compassion to the heinous torture law. Wrongo bongo, my nave, gullible republican friend (?). When the smoke clears, the smoke McCain was blowing up your rectum, the "compromise" gave GWB everything he wanted. Even if isnt explicitly specified in the law, he can issue a signing statement to clarify his limitless torture power. And even worse, John McCain and the republican congress, gave GWB a pass on his past violations on previous torture laws, so why would anyone think he will be compelled to follow the new law.

John McCain and fellow republicans just voted to give George, King powers. Ironically we are being tyrannically ruled by another King George. It is time to dust off the Declaration of Independence, resign and re-present it.

It disgusts me that Senator McCain would use sympathy for his war torture to mislead the public into thinking he could provide some insight into the new republican torture law. I think Senator McCain thinks he might be first in line to be the next King.

Dont underestimate the power of power.

1. You've nailed that one
It is totally disgusting that he would use this to play into the hands of those who seek to destroy everything good and just about this country. :puke: You may very well be right about his true motivations.

2. I didn't know Bush was the Devil. I thought he was just
Beelzebubba.

3. Partially agree. Bush ain't the devil. Cheney is!!
George is a sorry, hapless, pawn. The neocons will probably throw him to the wolves at some point.

4. Neither McCain nor Cheney is THE Devil and I can prove it...

see? photographic evidence shows us the REAL McCain.

Now for a look at the TRUE Cheney, when he's not in front of a camara...


While the Devil, himself remains behind the scenes,
there are a few lesser demons working in government...

6. Who is Jesus then? , America is my best guess.
I'm trying to figure who McCain can be seen as a disciple, who he later betrays.
