  •  It's sad, isn't it. (6+ / 0-)

    I saw the speech he gave about Bachmann's vile accusations. On the TeeVee, they've recently been rerunning that clip from '08 when he took the mic back and corrected the woman who called Obama 'an Arab.' Kinda makes you feel like there IS someone good & decent, buried deep down in there, longing to break free.

    And then...

    Oh well.

      We have our moments ... and our moments.

      Prior to, and subsequent to, WWII, Oskar Schindler was a womanizing gambling drinking cheating scoundrel.

      During WWII, he remained all of those things, but managed to use that character for ultimate good.

        We certainly all have our moments, both of grace and of the lack of same.

        However, what we all also have (and what I am referring to when I say the McCain he chose to be) is the running story of our lives. Who have we really chosen to be?

        That matters a lot to me, and McCain has chosen to be an angry and vindictive man who dislikes women, had a poor service record, and cheated when he could get away with it. Sure there is a noble something in there, and it sometimes shows through. But he consistently returns to his own life story. A moment here and there, or even surviving torture, do not make a good, fair, or honest man.
