What Some People Will Do To Win Elections

Somebody's an idiot.
I don't know who, but doesn't it seem strange that John McCain, who sought out the endorsement of John Hagee who has made a career of calling the Roman Catholic church "the great whore", "false cult system" and "the apostate church" yet had no problem with attending the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast.
Is this just another cynical ploy by the Republican party to get people to vote against their own interests by courting both the Catholic and anti-catholic vote? The Pope has criticized the war in Iraq while Hagee feels we should be fighting war with Iran as well. Obviously, McCain hopes that one side, or both, are too stupid to figure out that he can't give them both what they want. At least he can't be accused of flip-flopping, because he doesn't have a position to flip-flop on.

The Nat'l Prayer Bkfst is tied to a sect, that Hillary belongs to. I believe "Mother Jones" had an article to that effect.

Unfortunately McCain is right about one thing: there are an awful lot of stupid voters out there. Give them the right soundbite and they'll vote against their own interests every time. And too often they don't notice the contradictory positions their candidate takes. But McCain is really pushing the envelope here. At some point even the dumbest of the dumb will have to start noticing that McCain has taken almost every position at some point.
