Cohen: The Ugly John McCain [✜]
Richard Cohen of the Washington Post is the latest member of the media elite to have the scales fall from his eyes. And its not pretty: - "[McCain] has become the sort of politician he once despised" - "McCain has turned ugly" - "He means to win, which is all right; he means to win at all costs, which is not." - "McCain lied about his lying..." - "John McCain is both [a farce and a tragedy]." It was almost exactly two years ago that Chris Matthews said "The press loves McCain. We're his base.". McCain spent a lifetime building up that base. In three weeks, he has lost them. Expect a heartfelt apology any moment now.
