"Yes, he's a social conservative, but his heart isn't in this stuff," one former aide told me, referring to McCain's instinctual unwillingness to impose on others his personal views about issues such as religion, sexuality, and abortion. "But he has to pretend [that it is], and he's not a good enough actor to pull it off. He just can't fake it well enough."

Holy crap. Did I just find myself thinking that McCain wouldn't be so bad??

Oh right, I forgot - he loves war and wants more of it.

I certainly don't blame him for hating "gooks" as he refers to his captors and torturers. He seems to understand that not all asian people are evil sadistic bastards like they were.

But the last thing America needs is another cowboy who thinks us being in Iraq is A-OK. The mere fact that McCain espouses a "stay the course" attitude is plenty to put me off him.

(Frankly, I think McCain doesn't have a chance, and everyone from Cheney on down knows it. I see this election as just another case of the Republican party throwing McCain under the bus. They let him run because they know he won't win. But he'll at least feel like he was given a chance.)

We'll see. I'm fairly confident in my estimate.

I think Don Rumsfeld with have a different view of McCain's stance.
