Vice President Joe Biden was on “Meet the Press” on Sunday, and made clear his support for equality. He was quoted as saying “I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women, and heterosexual men and women marrying another are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, [...]

“Maverick” is a mantle McCain no longer claims; in fact, he now denies he ever was one. “I never considered myself a maverick,” he told me. Sure I’d love to deny aspects of John McCain’s never-ending campaigns too, but that pesky reality thing prevents me from whisking Sarah Palin back into obscurity.
First, President Straight Talk willfully made stuff up about the health care bill adding 2.5 trillion to the federal deficit, and now this: I think one of the reasons I am most thankful John McCain didn’t win the presidency is the factual recklessness (and petty vindictiveness) with which he speaks and acts.
I’m sick and tired of conventional wisdom being set by Republicans who talk nonsense without being held to account by the media. It’s time to start calling it what it is: lying. John McCain, championing Kelly Ayotte in Nashua last week: McCain also criticized Democrats for adding trillions to the national deficit, which he said [...]
DC establishment Republican John McCain visited DC establishment Republican backed Kelly Ayotte last weekend for a little of that Granite State Maverick Magic that resulted in a near ten-point margin loss for his presidential bid in 2008 (boldface mine): McCain called the Democrats’ health care legislation a “train wreck” that is “full of budget gimmicks [...]

John McCain ended up with the worst vote percentage for a Republican presidential nominee in New Hampshire since Bob Dole in 1996 (and to be fair to Dole, remember that Ross Perot was a viable third party candidate that year). But he’s back in March to stump for Kelly Ayotte. This makes perfect sense. John [...]

Another distinguished colleague of Senate Republican Judd Gregg, and recipient of the finest government health insurance we taxpayers can provide, fearmongers about reconciliation. Just one problem. Judd Gregg loves reconcilation, especially when it results in tax cuts for the wealthiest: Hey guess what? We don’t need John McCain’s vote on health insurance reform because a [...]
John McCain was just on the news thumping a podium and declaring, “This bill is not bipartisan!” Oh, give me a break already. The bill is very bipartisan; the drafters put a lot of money toward tax cuts right off the bat in an effort to be bipartisan. There are 299 billion dollars in tax [...]
