What the Heck?!

What is UP with Mitt Romney and John McCain pandering to the Christian right? As governor of Massachusetts, Romney used to support gay rights and a woman's right to choose. Now that's he angling for the White House, forget it. Suddenly his "conscience" is trumping the Constitution.

As for John McCain, his glueing himself to Jerry Falwell is positively distressing. I used to like John McCain. I admired his strength in surviving the Hanoi Hilton. In Congress it appeared he was doing a better job than Ol' Dubya in being the "uniter" instead the "divider." And I appreciated his lambasting the Religious Right for its often hateful intolerence. David Kuo elaborates beautifully.

How disappointing.
