McCain Erratic Behavior no Maverick

John McCain isn't a maverick and Rolling Stone contributing editor, Tim Dickinson separates the facts from the fiction on the Republican presidential candidate.

The John McCain that Tim Dickinson revealed in his article in Rolling Stone gives a closer look at a life and career of recklessness and dishonesty. The real elitist, McCain attended Episcopal High School, an all-white, all-boys boarding school across the Potomac in Virginia, where tuition today tops $40,000 a year.

In March 2008 McCain told The Wall Street Journal that he is "always for less regulation" but by September with the Bush government forced to bail out the nation's biggest insurance firm and brokerage house, McCain said that he would regulate the financial industry and end the "casino culture on Wall Street".

McCain's flip-flopping is the commitment he's taking to advance his own career by whatever means necessary and always reach for attention and glory by stretching the truth or outright deception.

Smith one of McCain's GOP colleagues has gone on record of saying that he's temperamentally unsuited to be commander-in-chief. The former senator from New Hampshire said that McCain's "temper would place this country at risk in international affairs and the world perhaps in danger. In my mind, it should disqualify him". Senator, Thad Cochran of Mississippi said that "the thought of his being President sends a cold chill down my spine. He is erratic and he's hotheaded".

You can read Tim Dickinson's ten page article at Rolling Stone for yourself and see why McCain's 11th-hour theatrics in September to abruptly suspend his campaign and run to Pennsylvania Avenue to help with the bailout debate at the last minute is no coincidence. It is so much like the reckless character that he's so famously known by his GOP colleagues.
