After running through the list of John McCain vs John McCain and his flip-flops on policy issues, Rachel Maddow ends with this:
MADDOW: John McCain is not the chair of any committee. John McCain does not have any major legislation to his credit from his entire career in the Senate other than the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law, which he doesn't exactly support with a brass band any more anyway. Senator John McCain's stances on legislation and important policy issues and principles are so fundamentally inconsistent as to render the phrase flip-flop meaningless and yet John McCain is still viewed as a Washington oracle; as a guy you've got to win over.
If you do fail to win him over though, don't worry, a new John McCain might come along any minute now and maybe you will have better luck with him.
