Once a Piece of @#$%, Always a Piece of @#$%

The piece of crap that is John McCain is apparently back to doing what he likes to do best -- oppose and attack and obstruct and frustrate the efforts of his own party.

A joke made its way around the Capitol yesterday: How do you know the 2008 election is really over? Because John McCain is causing trouble for Republicans again. . . . In some instances, he's even carrying water for his former rival [Barack Obama]. . . .

When he's not being a useful idiot by carrying water for President Obama and the Dems, he's attacking his own.

The surest sign of McCain's return to his "maverick" ways came when he caught wind of an effort by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) to delay Clinton's confirmation vote by a day, pushing it from Tuesday to Wednesday because he was seeking greater disclosure about foreign donors to former president Bill Clinton's charitable foundation. McCain found the objection gratuitous -- despite policy disagreements with Clinton, he and most Republicans consider her well qualified -- and said so publicly.

And, of course, if Obama is working to dismantle anything that President Bush did, even to the detriment of the security of the American people, McCain is all for it.

And he continues to march to his own tune. Yesterday, McCain applauded Obama's executive order to close the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, within a year.
