Audio Politic, or, McCain Flaps His Yap; Flips His Flop

My previous respect for Sen. McCain is pretty much gone after hearing him on Meet The Press the other day. There’s no doubt about it; he’s running for president, and the obligatory pandering to the extreme Christian right has officially begun. Whereas he once referred to Jerry Falwell as an “agent of intolerance”, apparently they’re all buddy-buddy now. Yuck.

He’s still a quick wit, though. His last comment to Tim Russert in the interview: “I haven’t had this much fun since my last interrogation.”

Meanwhile, it becomes increasingly clear to me that Thomas Friedman is a very, very smart person. Well worth a close listen, IMHO.
