John McCain, Just Another Politician (Part 2 in an Unending Series)
by Nicholas Beaudrot of Electoral Math
Sometimes life is just good to you. As if on cue, responding to our discussion of the numerous flip-flops he'll make to win the Republican nomination, John McCain traveled to Iowa and said that ethanol was "worthy of another look" (via The Carpetbagger Report). Over the past two weeks, between the reader comments and idle pondering, here are some new issues that would make life difficult for McCain:
- Arizona has a ballot initiative to raise the minimum wage. Do you support or oppose this initiative? (Via Neil)
- Should gay men and women be allowed to serve openly in the military?
- Should Donald Rumsfeld resign?

"When, exactly, did you decide that becoming president was more important than your self-respect?"
"Every time you hump George Bush's leg, how many showers do you have to take before the stank comes off?"
"How much progress have you made toward destroying the last remnants of your humanity?"
"Is there any bill that you have ever sponsored that wasn't just political theater?"

C'mon Stephen, those aren't wedge questions -- McCain is fully to one side of them. Try and write ones that he'll want, but be unable, to claim both sides of.
* If abortion is murder, why are you in favor of murdering babies born of rape?
* If abortion is murder, what penalties would you specify for the woman?

Sen. McCain, Do you think it is likely you would be able to finish a term of office as President beginning in 2009 given your history of cancer and your age in the 70's (the oldest President in US history when taking the oath of office)?
Do your recent huge swings on issues from center-right to radical-right indicate how you would govern, or are they just early signs of Alzheimer's disease?
