For McCain is an Honorable Man ...

Take a look at John McCain's latest:

That business about canceling his visit to wounded soldiers because there wouldn't be cameras present was -- a lie. Anybody still think McCain is an "honorable man"? (You'd never guess his new campaign manager is a Karl Rove groupie, would you?)

I especially like that "Country First" slogan at the end.

“In Dr. Johnson’s famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last resort of a scoundrel. With all due respect to an enlightened but inferior lexicographer, I beg to submit that it is the first.”—Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary, at entry for patriotism, The Collected Writings of Ambrose Bierce, p. 323 (1946, reprinted 1973).
