Thanks to Vikki for pointing me toward this article in the Rolling Stone about "Maverick" McCain.
You owe it to yourself to read this article and then send a link to it to everybody you know, for god's sake. I knew most of the facts that it states, but to have them put together paints an absolutely devastating portrait of McCain, who has run on his purported "character." He's a total opportunist politically and a creep personally. A McCain presidency would be a disaster.
BTW, it looks like the attempt at character assassination via the non-existent Ayers/Obama connection isn't working. According to Gallup, Obama is up a percentage point and McCain down one. Obama leads 52% to 41%. Not even an endorsement from the NRA seems to be able to save McCain.
