It is good to have Patrick posting here on a more frequent basis, but trying to skip past Senator McCain’s iceberg moment won’t fly.
Senator McCain simply does not care what the republican base thinks. he didn’t care on McCain-Feingold. He didn’t care on the Gang of 14. he didn’t care on McCain-Kennedy 1.0 or the treatment and trial of terrorists bill, and he doesn’t care on the fence and McCain-Kennedy 2.0.
That won’t fly, and he didn’t finish in the top 9 tonight for that reason. Rudy and Mitt won, and the others at least didn’t hurt themselves. Only Senator McCain said “screw you” to the voters whose votes he needs.
