Oh, if only McCain had won that 2000 South Carolina primary. Now that he’s back in the Senate, he seems to be acting a little more like the legislator he should be, and that cat who would have been a far better GOP nominee 8 years ago. What are you doing these days, Mac? Slamming the door on Sen. Cornyn’s shenanigans? Hells yes.
It just reminds me that so many of our celebrities’ and politicians' images are controlled by their public relations teams sending press releases to media outlets and controlling what questions can be asked. Where did the McCain from the presidential campaigns come from? The Candidate was a cooked up caricature of someone who might appeal to the base and the independent voters at the same time, but the PR team couldn’t decide which narrative to run. Now that Mac is free from all that, he can get back to being himself, and doing what he does best (love it or hate it).
I’m glad to see that.
In other “where are they now” celebrity-for-the-sake-of-celebrity news, Sarah “Media Hate Me” Palin is taking time off from her busy schedule of being professionally persecuted by the Big Bad Media, and is ready to color in a book deal. I wonder what the title will be? Perhaps & Also: Sarah Palin’s Guide to Public Speaking; maybe From Predator to Prey – How Mama Grizzly Got Ambushed by Someone Like Katie Couric; how about All of Them – A Collection of Writings that Shaped My Unique Political Opinions.

Limbaugh, talk radio, and even Jock DJ's have joined this belief system. The countdown to the destruction of America has begun. Welcome to Day 3 & A Half.
