Poor John McCain: Forced Against His Honor to Run an Ugly Campaign
Time's Ana Marie Cox, in a Bloggingheads discussion
with Ann Althouse, does an excellent job of expressing what is still,
amazingly enough, the prevailing media view of John McCain: namely,
that this deeply honorable and principled man is vehemently opposed to
running an ugly, dirty campaign against Barack Obama, and that is
happening despite McCain's deep opposition to such campaigns and the
way it profoundly violates his code of honor.
