More From John McCain's Forked Tongue Express

John McCain used to be a straight talker and a truly decent guy back when he fought for campaign finance reform and when he called Christian Right leaders, like Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and John Hagee, "agents of intolerance.

Indeed, as this article points out, back in 2000, he said:
"The politics of division and slander are not our values," McCain said in Virginia. "They are corrupting influences on religion and politics and those who practice them in the name of religion or in the name of the Republican Party or in the name of America shame our faith, our party and our country."
But that was then. This is now and here's what ABC News reported this morning.

As you can see, from the video, McCain seems to disagree with Pastor Rod Parsley's highly inflammatory statements, yet he also said he was proud to have the controversial preacher's endorsement.

The problem is you never know which John McCain you're going to get anymore.

Say what you will about John McCain, but I'm sure he believes at least one of those things.

Well, maybe, anyway.
