    I don't generally agree with his politics, but he generally seems to be a decent man. There is an interesting and rather touching article in Slate about his friendship with former Democratic Congressman Mo Udall.

    Here are several reasons as a Vet I don't like McCain. You would think he would be a little more interested in the Vets state of affairs.

    He also has a very volatile temper and was heard to call one of his wives a "runt."

    I'm not voting for McCain, I'm voting against the other one that will eventually get the nomination.

    Puh-lease. You don't like McCain because he isn't a frothing at the mouth liberal.

    Under the Bush "tax cuts" the top 1% of income earners have gone from shouldering 29% of the nation's tax burden in 2001 to 38% of it in 2008 The top 5% from 44% in 2001 to 59% in 2008, The top 50% has gone from paying 82% to 97% of all taxes. That means the bottom HALF pays almost NO Federal Taxes anymore....

    So who has been hurt again by the Bush "tax cuts"????

    Huh? Like most of the naive I read you miss the big picture for some biased nonsense they teleport into your head. And consider if I make a shitload more money my share percentage may go up. But see below for a bit of the real.

    Good. The rich pay disproportionately high taxes as it is.

    It's pretty easy to see why many liberals would like McCain.
