Six Lies About McCain
Michael Medved's terrific new column at Townhall
He has never backed Democratic candidates for president or lesser posts – other than supporting his friend Joe Lieberman in his Independent campaign for US Senate in 2006. Over the years, he has campaigned tirelessly for Republican office-holders in every corner of the country – including vigorous campaigning that helped win elections for his former rival George W. Bush in both 2000 and 2004.
Let me add a couple of things there. The Republican in the 2006 Connecticut race wasn't going to win no matter what happened; Lieberman and Lamont took almost 90% of the vote between them.
And second I don't know how many of you remember the 2004 McCain speech at the convention. I only remember parts of it--particularly the part where he blasted Michael Moore and Moore could only respond by doing the L symbol on his forehead. But Kitty pointed out my nervousness before the speech
(there was a fear that he was going to go off the reservation), and my reaction
Wow! What a strong speech!
