McCain Again-

Ed from Captain's Quarters is absolutely blasting McCain, here and here! Some thoughts...

Q. Will this build into a huge crescendo a la RatherGate and EasonGate?
A. Ask Glenn Reynolds. If he links to it, it will. And it should. The 1st Amendment is a lot bigger than John McCain.

Q. Will McCain become the latest to resign due to the tsk tsk-ing of a blogswarm!?!
A. No. No offense to the higher beings of the blogosphere- but if the NVA couldn't break McCain's spirit Captain Ed and the Instapundit won't, either.

Q. Is McCain a scumbag?
A. Yes.
Q. How can you say that? He's a good man and a war hero!
A. If St. Theresa tried to infringe on the 1st Amendment she'd be a scumbag. If there was ever a deal breaker, it there ever was a one-issue issue strong enough to absolutely define (and dismiss) a candidate, attacking free speech is it! To paraphrase Samuel Jackson as Jules in Pulp Fiction - " A sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie. I'll never know 'cause even if it did, I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfucker." McCain might be the best human being EVER, but even if he was I wouldn't know, 'cause I wouldn't research the free-speech endangering mother f---cker.

Q. What's the deal with McCain's jaw? He looks like he's got an 8lb. chaw going.
A. Don't go there. Hillary's cankles are one thing, McCain's jaw is another. Wait. No, it isn't. He's attacking free speech! I think it looks more like he's growing a second noggin out the side of his face. If it pops out he'll look like that conjoined fetus lady in South Park. (If that growth is the result of beatings he took in his bamboo cage in Vietnam I'm going to feel like shit.)

Q. What's the biggest danger in this situation?
A. That the blogosphere will only push the issue until bloggers feel secure, leaving McCain/Feingold alive to fight another day, or on another front. A la Sauron when his finger got cut off... Gollum.
