“I didn’t decide to run for President to start a national crusade for the political reforms I believed in or to run a campaign as if it were some grand act of patriotism. In truth, I wanted to be President because it had become my ambition to be President. I was sixty two years old when I made the decision and I thought it was my one shot at the prize.” John McCain (Excerpt from his book, “Worth Fighting For: A Memoir” 2002)

After a major Sarah Palin media love fest last week, things have begun to focus on the unprecedented lies being spread by the McCain-Palin ticket. It’s quite something to see unprecedented lying being spewed by the Republican ticket after 8 years of the most dishonest and anti-American administration in our history. Calling McCain and Palin liars is not a matter of opinion, it’s a matter of fact that anyone with an internet connection can look up.
There are two truly astounding and bewildering facts about John McCain and his campaign. First is this self declared “maverick” has done a complete 360 on all the principals which allowed him that honor. Something remarkable happened, something quite provable and clear for anyone who can research and think. McCain, in a nosedive of a campaign, morphed into someone else, coming out with a platform more to the right than GW. In order to become President, McCain reversed everything he stood for and went after the Republican base, a group of Americans so afraid of evolution and truth, that they simply deny it, both literally and figuratively.
