John McCain was once an exceptional politician. He really was. He really was a maverick. He had real integrity. Much as any liberal might have disagreed with him on substance, his heroism as a POW was internally consistent with his political positions. Like, for example, his opposition to the Bush torture regime. Like his opposition to American jingoism and his support of a humane immigration policy. Like his willingness to call leaders of the Christian Right by their proper name: agents of intolerance.

All that is gone. John McCain has abandoned what he really believed. John McCain has betrayed himself. And he has done it for the one reason he swore he never would. He has authorized a campaign of sleaze in order to win an election.  Source Article
