I can’t think of anything better to grab the news this week by showing up. McCain would have been “seen” standing proudly for life.

A letter, anyone can write.

Go ahead and believe the excuse though. Obviously you want to believe them.

This is an issue important to conservatives. McCain did not want to be “seen”. It might turn off his base voters. You know, the ones he reassured that Ginsberg and Breyer got his vote.

Look, McCain has voted pro life in the past. I just want to see that he really believes in it enough to stand up in public and be heard. Not a lot to ask for really.

The convention, as I recall, was in early July. What McCain was doing then, I don't know. The pro-life web site posted the text of the speech today.

You've become judge and jury about McCain's motives, sententiously attributing his absence to your "fact" that he "didn't want to be seen."

I'll take his 115 of 119 pro-life votes and the endorsement of NRTL over the subjective hauteur of his critics.
