McCain the Able?

I think this broad's off her rocker sometimes, but this column from Amity Shlaes in is a really thoughtful exploration of why John McCain isn't as lame as everyone in Washington would have us believe. In fact, for a Republican, he's pretty straightforward and fair, actually has a plan, and puts his money where his mouth is. In short, he's completely un-Bushlike.

No wonder the other Republicans hate him.

McCain is very bush-like when it comes to saying our troops will be dying in Iran for years to come. Did he learn nothing from our years in Vietnam?
Also, when a Republican says he will vote agianst any pork barrel bill, he means any bill that taxes the rich or helps the poor.

Doesn't seem like the Democrats are doing much better, except for John Edwards. The others are all too busy compromising and sucking up like Nancy Pelosi. (I can only wonder which lobbyists managed to get hold of her short-n-frizzies.)

You are right. If you change your name to "None of the above" you would win by a landslide.
