The making and breaking of the McCain maverick myth

If you have time for a long read, Rolling Stone has an excellent 10 page article putting the myth of the war hero maverick McCain into perspective.

Short version: McCain is, and always been, a lazy, spoiled, hot-headed self-serving opportunist who was a reckless hot dogger, not a war hero. He's addicted to sex and gambling, he hates women and he doesn't care who he steps on to get ahead.

That's a good synopsis, but really, the entire article is a Must-Read. And pass it on to everyone you know, especially anyone thinking of voting for McCain.

A maverick is an unbranded horse and in that respect he fits the definition. He belongs to whomever it suits him to belong and for as long as it suits him.

Shane, I'm pimping this one on more than one blog for sure.

Fogg, well said as always. Good to see you. I've been missing you.

Fogg, I found a better definition: Maverick - 1. Southwestern U.S. an unbranded calf, cow, or steer, esp. an unbranded calf that is separated from its mother.
I think that suits him much better!
