“Gee, what a wonderful recommendation...”
No, it’s not, and that’s the point. McCain is tolerable, barely. I think he’ll move a bit to the right to solidify his base in the Republican Party. Still, voting for him is much more about voting for the (far) lesser of two evils, rather than voting for an ideal Republican candidate.
I think McCain should keep that fact well in mind - hence the slogan.
Personally, I think I'd rather vote for Cthulhu. As a tagline I've seen wandering around here says, “Why vote for the lesser of two evils?”
OTH, that would be Hillary, wouldn't it?
I do wish McCain would select and announce his VP. Maybe then I could quit dithering.
