McCain panders to extremists

Joel Connelly pens a column about McCains past and present:
The McCain of 2000 characterized televangelists Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson as "agents of intolerance."

But he spoke last year at Falwell's Liberty University. And, as a 2008 front-runner, he met privately Monday in Florida with conservative religious broadcasters.

McCain will have a similar session here Friday, disclosed Tuesday by Gary Randall of the Faith and Freedom Network.

Randall quoted McCain on reversal of the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark 1973 abortion decision. During a South Carolina speech last weekend, McCain declared: "I do not support Roe v. Wade. It should be overturned."
Some moderate. Tim Hardaway gets smacked around and meanwhile John McCain is going to waltz into Seattle and do some pandering, but somehow that's just fine.

We need to find a cure for Republicanism, because it's a very destructive lifestyle choice, especially for New Orleanians, US service members and Iraqis.

And don't forget the anti-science bigots.
