BuzzFlash's GOP Hypocrite Of The Week

Hey, it's Friday, which means it's time to check out BuzzFlash's "GOP Hypocrite Of The Week." As always, it's a grueling process to narrow the selection to just one Republican hypocrite, and this week BuzzFlash went with the only obvious choice: John McCain.

McCain is so all over the map this week that he has to be getting confused even within his own head. He's going on David Letterman and then he's not. He's rushing back to Washington to save the nation's economy and then he takes a bunch of time with Katie Couric in New York City.

Here's BuzzFlash:
The press has helped push John McCain's message through repeated election cycles, now. "Straight Talk Express." "Hero." "Maverick." Most reporters backed off when McCain partially released his medical records in a way that clearly didn't give a legitimate glimpse to a medical background that has had lots of problems.

But hypocrisy and lies and dissing them?

McCain's in trouble now. He had hoped to use Couric by appearing; and he hoped to use Letterman by not appearing. He tried to work them both to make him look serious and good and essential to solving our country's most urgent problem.

But, alas, John McCain was a two-faced hypocrite. He said he was rushing off to save the country. Everybody can see, though, that he was trying to save his political ass, not his country. And he wasn't even in that much of a rush.
You can read the rest at and see a historical list of BuzzFlash's other worthy selections.
