What's a principle worth, when principal is involved?

Hard as it is to believe, John McCain was on a Sunday Talk Show yesterday. I'll give you a moment to get over your shock…


In the wake of last week's atrocious Supreme Court Decision Citizens United v. FEC (aka NASCAR as political model) Mr. Maverick revealed the commitment he has to the one issue he's actually had a modest legislative success in:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), co-crafter of landmark campaign finance legislation in his career, said he thought not much could be done to counter the Supreme Court's decision Thursday to lift long-held restrictions on corporate donations to political candidates.

McCain would obviously have been completely worthless if he was around when Plessy v. Ferguson or Dred Scott came down -- oh, that's right he was.

But then again, shrugging and saying "oh well" does seem to be bipartisan.
