  •  Another straw man argument from the Right (5+ / 0-)

    I couldn't get over how much McCain intentionally misrepresented the opposition to moving on.  He stressed over and over that our argument revolves around disagreement with those who drafted the memos.  Wrong, of course; we are opposed to the administration's desire to implement torture as policy, and their willingness to sully the nation's name by carrying it out (among other things).

    I think McCain's trying to frame the issue in terms that he can counter, so that he doesn't have to address the real concerns out there.  (And shame on Face the Nation for not calling him on it.)

    Either that, or McCain's just plain stupendously naive.

    Just this guy, you know?
