Everyone who frequents the Political Forum probably knows by now that my favorite American magazine is Reason. Matt Welch, their Editor-in-Chief, has devoted many articles (and one full-length book) on debunking the "John McCain-as-maverick-reformer" mindset that a lot of the MSM has. Here is a link to his most recent article (a quick search on their site will provide several more):
McCain's Georgian Hyperbole: Exaggerating threats is a feature, not a bug, of McCainite neoconservatism, and reveals much about what kind of president he'd make. - Reason Magazine
Do we have any big McCain fans on here? Who hates him with pathological obsession? Care to compare/contrast his policies and persona with Obama's?
