Yeh, Things Are So Much Better

John McCain never was the true maverick or straight talker he professes, but two recent examples show just how far rom the truth and straight talk he really is:

First, in a move that at least partially illustrates the emptiness of campaign finance reform, McCain has declined federal funding because he doesn't want to abide by McCain-Feingold (his own bill).

Second, his wreck of a Straight Talk Express, has driven into the figurative ditch. McCain claimed things are so much better in Iraq. However, his supposed market stroll in Iraq this week really showed the opposite of what he was claiming. Shopping with armed guards (our servicemen diverted from their primary mission), armor, helicopters overhead sounds like such a great shopping trip. Read about and watch it here.
