I am fully prepared to say that John McCain is the least objectionable of the Republican candidates. But when you look at his career and contrast his decisions and his statements against those of other people whose lives we have celebrated recently (here and here), you really get a sense of just how abysmal a candidate he really is, and how utterly without hope the Republican party is.
Anyway, this is pretty good stuff. It made me laugh and cry at the same time. You'll figure it out.
