I submitted this with a slightly less funny headline.

McCain seems to have been breaking with the base and grabbing headlines more often lately.  I wonder what he's up to.

I liked it but he wasn't yelling at the (different) clouds, he was creating them

....whoa...

No, that gets him quiet. He starts breaking with the base when he's in bully mode.

You got the headline that was in my head but I couldn't figure out how to say. Well done, sir.

My exact thoughts. I mean, when he ran for President, he did everything in his power to destroy everything he'd ever built. All rational and moderate aspects were shredded, burned, and salted. Now he is back at his moderate rational politics that can only leave you wondering.

I bet he goes (I).

Eh, it's not really that shocking for McCain. He did the same thing when he ran in the primaries in 2000, then again in '04. It's kind of sad, really. He was one of the few (far fewer now) who stood up to the party establishment on some issues and stressed the necessity of compromise...but when he wanted that promotion, boy, it really showed. Toes positively superglued to the party line.

There really is no sane argument against legalization.  Our roads are already filled with stoners and we're still alive, because most of them are going slower than they normally would.  At this point if you want marijuana prohibition you should just admit you got tricked by propaganda from the 1930's to protect the timber industry and you're willing to empower drug cartels in Mexico in order to keep pretending you're not an idiot.

Wonder how the Tea Partiers feel about legalization -- there seems to be a significant libertarian contingent to them.

I'd guess it's spit about 50/50.  The libertarians would see it as an unnecessary government involvement, but the bigots love that it targets mexicans and jass-rapists.

Libertarian? If you don't slut shame that dirty rape victim they call you a RINO. I know they are all free markety, but they are the rebranded religious right.

What does that have to do with pot?

Two years ago I sat next to Senator McCain on a flight from PHX as I made my way back from Burning Man. I was sure he got some playa dust on him from my carry-on bag. Now I'm convinced that he did. It took a little bit to achieve its full effect, but playa dust is magical.

PS. I didn't talk to him during the flight. Even though I had a chance to shower, it takes a couple more showers to get clean after BM and all I had that was clean to wear for the flight was a vintage 70s shirt and jeans. I didn't think the Senator wanted to be bothered by someone that looked and smelled like a no-good tree hugging hippie. Little did I know...

The war on drug is still pretty popular with them.

That's the only way he's going to get re-elected in Congress.  Man, oh, man, why didn't he act like this during his presidential bid?  Granted, I still would have voted for Obama, but it would have been a closer race.

I think that whole black baby push poll business with Rove in 2000 soured his whole outlook on the "straight talking" angle.

McCain: "Maybe we should legalize. We're certainly moving that way as far as marijuana is concerned. I respect the will of the people"

Old people say the darndest things.

Well. This is a positive development.

Nice to have John on board.  Let's get this done, I'm jonesing.
