For McCain, Self-Confidence on Ethics Poses Its Own Risk

WASHINGTON — Early in Senator John McCain’s first run for the White House eight years ago, waves of anxiety swept through his small circle of advisers.

A female lobbyist had been turning up with him at fund-raisers, visiting his offices and accompanying him on a client’s corporate jet. Convinced the relationship had become romantic, some of his top advisers intervened to protect the candidate from himself — instructing staff members to block the woman’s access, privately warning her away and repeatedly confronting him, several people involved in the campaign said on the condition of anonymity.

Before John Edwards there was John McCain, “The original adulterer.” He is a master of deceit. He had many affairs during his first marraige with his first wife Carol McCain before settling with his mistress and now his second wife Cindy McCain. Some potential first family, dishonest cheaters.

  3. HYPOCRITE…how ironic.

    “every quasi-moralistic religious evangelical miscreant.”

    Lot of “hate” in those words. So we are to assume you are beyond rehabilitation natureboy? Oh I’m sorry, I guess you are just morally superior than the rest of us “miscreants”.

    Once again, tolerance at its finest…you have become the very thing you hate.

  4. Per above, with the exception, I might propose: Once a racist, always a racist.
    People who make the choice to become activist bigots (nazis, KKK, skinheads, gay-bashers, et. al.) seem to have flipped a hard-wired switch in their brains which can almost never be switched back.
    It’s likely also impossible to fully rehabilitate an addict. Hate is an addiction, as is religion, I would argue. We already know Limbaugh is a drug addict, he’s also likely a religious addict and a hate-addict, and is therefore not capable of rehabilitation. Those addicted to the ideas he espouses, are themselves addicted to addiction, and likely lost to any possibility of repair.

    But back to the topic, past patterns may be a prediction of future performance. But in the case of this man, you don’t need past scandals to know that McBomb is the very worst thing that america could do to the world this election (well, second-worst).

    Certainly the matter of past ethics is nothing the religious right who controls the entire country for decades now, should have any tolerance for. If their anointed leader is exposed for unapologetically violating the ethics these hypocritical moral nazis espouse, then they have no option but to hang that leader out to dry.

    If McBomb is shown to have behaved unethically in any way whatsoever, and if the Limbaughs of the shock-jock set choose to skewer the messenger (The Times) and not the stinking fish itself, then the whole bunch of ‘em are rotten (not that we needed this story to know that),

    Each and every quasi-moralistic religious evangelical miscreant espousing the malarkey that causes all this trouble in the world, can only be defined for once and for all, by one word: HYPOCRITE.

  6. Susan, I don’t believe he actually cheated on his wife. Did he previously? I don’t know.

    The saying “once a “blank”, always a “blank” ” isn’t true. People can and do change. Amazing things have happened to many people in their lives and they are changed forever (for the good). God oftentimes has something to do with it. 🙂
