Who ranked McCain as a facist?  Take a stand and explain your view.


If McCain is a Facist than what was Mussolini?

Hey Tim, I'm curious....  I know your LSN link is a joke, but what about the stats you listed.

Lies. He hasn't even gotten his LSAT results yet.

That's not entirely true since I'm retaking

Edit: Current Numbers are 3.7GPA and 157 LSAT. Afterstudying Practice LSAT scores 165-180, concentrated around 170. Just don't want to hijack this thread so I preempting if anyone was asking for real numbers.

It is actually laughable that McCain has that many votes placing him on the far right end of the spectrum.

I thought that too.  I'm not seeing him pushing for nationalization of our industries and banks to fight the godless chinese quite yet.

Yeah, I'm really disappointed too. I have been a big McCain supporter for years, and when he won the nomination I was like "Finally, a Republican that Democrats will be able to support since he is a moderate!". I mean, how can the Democrats not like (even a little) a Republican who is disliked by the hard right conservative establishment as well as Rush and Hannity. I mean, sure I didn't expect them to support him but I also didn't think they would start calling him a hard-right fascist so quickly. Ugh, I guess to most Dems anyone with an Elephant button is Fascism Incarnate.

I was a Rudy supporter and that's basically what they did to him so I'm not surprised.  He was in a lose-lose situation.  To the far right he was a "baby killer" and to the left he all of a sudden became a right wing fascist.  It was only a matter of time before they did it to McCain (who I must admit I'm no fan of, but he's not a right wing lunatic.)

Really?  I'm the only one who voted "Obama 5, McCain 6"?

Maybe I'm just too cynical.
