If one more person calls McCain a "moderate" I will scream

It is irresponsible and unethical for John McCain to promote himself as a moderate when he is in fact, one of the most anti-choice politicians in America. He wants to continue funding abstinence-only "education" and lying to teenagers about birth control. He wants to limit access to contraception, which would prevent unplanned pregnancy. He wants to appoint Supreme Court Justices that would reverse Roe vs. Wade. This isn't a liberal conspiracy - he has said these things himself. He has said them proudly!

John McCain is an irresponsible, reactionary corrupt Republican. McCain is a pro-war Bush clone. McCain represents the interests of the radical religious right.

The mainstream media has been giving McCain a free ride, and it's time to stand up and say: If John McCain is a moderate, I'm a fairy princess.

Meet the Real McCain today.

being against abortion means you cant be a moderate?

thats some reasoning.

There are plenty of reasons that McCain does not fit a reasonable definition of moderate, but even if there weren't, his anti-choice politics would be enough for me to brand him a reactionary conservative.

Being morally or ethically opposed to abortion is his own business. But restricting the choices of American women and seeking to overturn Roe vs. Wade, which has been the law of the land for thirty years, makes John McCain and other Bush cronies the opposite of moderate: It makes them extremists.

Nothing to rag on him about? How about changing his position on the war in Iraq from one week to the next? I'll rag on him about that. I'll rag on him for having one of the worst anti-choice, anti-child, anti-woman reputations in the history of the Senate. I haven't had a hard time finding things to rag on him about, and I just hope that the mainstream media gets off their asses and starts noticing.
