John McCain: Is He Really Just Another George Bush?

Rolling Stone put a wicked hit on John McCain this week. If you buy the long, heavily reported piece, McCain comes off as an ungrateful son of privilege equal to George Bush: a mean, spoiled, shameless opportunist whose Navy career amounted to a string of self-inflicted failures that he only overcame through intervention by his well-connected family. In terms of pure infliction of damage, it's the nastiest takedown story on either presidential candidate so far. Of course, this is Rolling Stone, and the author makes no bones about his liberal bias. Throughout the piece, you'll find yourself constantly asking if this is the lefty version of a Swift Boat hatchet job. The sources advocating on behalf of McCain are few and far between. But it's also hard to dismiss, since it's loaded with name-brand Republicans with no apparent ax to grind, other than the mutual belief that McCain's a sizable piece of shit. Read it for yourself. Either way, it's a remarkable story.
