Good For McCain

Ah, sanity. It's been the negative attacks that have really been keeping his candidacy afloat. And I don't begrudge McCain for making as hard of a case as he can, that's just his best shot at the moment and he's only playing to win – I just happen to think he should be held responsible, too, for making that case. But, at a certain point, it goes from mudslinging to rabble rousing and, recently, there's been an extremely dangerous stream of resentment that he's been flaming. Again, I say good because it's just going to get the Republicans branded as the party of intolerance and bigotry for the next generation of voters. But it's still nice to see McCain step up and try to put a halt to the hate machine he so willfully unleashed.

Of course, when he said Obama was a decent man he got booed by his own supporters.

At moments like these, it's important to remember that real conservatives really don't like McCain. And don't consider him to be one of them. It'll be a watershed when – and only when – Palin starts making the same kind of gestures.
