That's Right, Iceman, I Am Dangerous

This just in: Senator John McCain (R-Surgistan) has legally changed his name to Maverick John McCain. The Senator, upon receiving the certificate with his official new name and the ceremonial plaque of brass balls that accompanies it, said, "Seemed best for the press, since they used it all the time anyway. Hate to make them seem like the liars they usually are, except when they discuss me, and how I stand up for things, like the President's plan for Iraq that no one else likes."

Meanwhile in other news the Boston Herald reports:

For seven years, conventional wisdom has said that the state’s pivotal independent voters would line up behind maverick Sen. John McCain, as they did so famously in the 2000 GOP primary. But new polling data, to be released later this week, will suggest that might no longer be the case.

Manchester, N.H.-based American Research Group finds that McCain’s popularity among New Hampshire’s independent voters has collapsed.

“John McCain is tanking,” says ARG president Dick Bennett. “That’s the big thing [we’re finding]. In New Hampshire a year ago he got 49 percent among independent voters. That number’s way down, to 29 percent now.”

[...]

Bennett says ARG is finding a similar trend in other states polled, including early primary battlegrounds like Iowa and Nevada. “We’re finding this everywhere,” he says.

Maverick McCain replied, "That just shows how much of a Maverick I am. Like President Bush, I find it's best to get little public support. Indeed, I plan to follow in his electoral footsteps and win the Presidency by having the fewest votes."

McCain, Clinton, Bush, Obama, it does not matter. Unfortunately it took segregationist Governor Wallace to reveal the truth that "there's not a dime's worth of difference between" Republicans and Democrats. The Democrats willingly went along with the War in Iraq, suspension of Habeas Corpus, detaining protesters, opening mail, banning books like "America Deceived' from Amazon, stealing private lands (Kelo decision), warrant-less wiretapping and refusing to investigate 9/11 properly. They are both guilty of treason.

Well, the freakin assclown, I mean Maverick, follows Bush's war plan to a T. And -- surprise, surprise, surprise -- he finds that his support is dropping to nothing.

Like all miltary men, he's fighting the last war. He can't get past the fact that Bush successfully painted him as a moderate in 2000. But talk about 6 1/2 years when a lot has changed. Jeez.
