Blood 'n' guts McCain tacked hard into the prevailing wind to visit the far-off land of Bushist Republican dead-enders. Now that the nomination is in hand, he's sailing back downwind seeking the center of the electorate.
Now, he's saying mean things about the sainted Duhbya:
"Only a fool or a fraud talks tough or romantically about war," McCain says over mournful strings against a bleak backdrop, including the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. "I hate war, and I know how terrible its costs are."How many issues can McCain take both sides of?
