Didn't John McCain lose?

In their continuing efforts to present the Republican point of view as mainstream, Politico writes a piece lavishing praise on John McCain.

But the real reason I'm writing this post is to recognize that the "special" relationship with Lindsey Graham is still as creepy as ever.
“The same ferocity he had about beating on Republicans ... is now being focused on people on the other side whose agenda is really overreaching,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), one of McCain’s closest friends in the Senate. “He has every reason to be upset. There’s no change there. What would have been a change was if he wasn’t pissed off.”

“He is now the de facto leader of the Republican Party.”


  • Well Obama gave him almost exactly what he wanted in Afghanistan. That must drive him crazy.

  • Yeah. It was actually pretty funny to watch him contort himself so he could "be against."

    After all, "maverick" ain' t about policy. It's about being against.
