"Cynical", Racist, or Both?
In reading at Diversity Inc, I found a comment that led me to some further research and investigation, and I found out something about McCain that surprised me, to say the least. Maybe his pandering to the far right isn't such a new thing after all. McCain actively supported George Wallce, Jr. in an election. I once said that I thought McCain was a maverick just because he liked the "bad boy" reputation. This may be more true than I suspected. Here are two of many links that back up the idea that he may be more racist than he cares to admit, or at least takes some biggoted stances, either because he believes in them, or to pander to the hard right. Judge for yourselves. ( I apologize for the links being in cut and paste form, but I haven't yet figured out how to link using the new server.)
