McCain is an unabashed and unapologetic fascist. He does not believe in free speech or the rule of law. Like nearly every other fascist in history, he hides behind the guise of "conservatism," while all the while pursuing a heavily Leftist agenda. On top of all of that, he is obviously mentally unstable. He plays the prisoner-of-war and war hero cards pretty heavily, but if you examine the facts in-depth, you find that his hero status is not much more credible than John Kerry's was.
That Richard chooses to endorse this lunatic means one of two things. Either Richard has adopted the same fascist ideology or that he is simply playing the game, devoid of principle. Either circumstance is unfortunate, but my guess is the latter, since Richard has had stars in his eyes for a while. I would guess that McCain has at least hinted the Richard would be on his short list for VP.
I know a lot of people who worked very hard to help Richard achieve what he has done. I also know a lot of them won't continue to support him due to his lackluster and highly ineffectual performance since he went to the Senate. I know more who will abandon him because of this endorsement.
What a shame. Another one bites the dust.
