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, for the second week in a row, BuzzFlash found it impossible to pick anyone other than John McCain.

McCain gets the dubious distinction again this week for his general sense of entitlement to the U.S. presidency and for how, as BuzzFlash puts it, the old "'Straight Talk Express' has transformed itself into the 'B.S. Shuttle.'"

An excerpt:
We could catalogue the disastrous unfolding of a man who wanted to win the presidency so much that he sold his soul to the devil, but the details are far too voluminous for this short dishonor roll.

Suffice it to say, if McCain had to list his top personal priorities at this moment, they would be: McCain, Lying, Lobbyists, Gambling, Lying, Greed, Lying, Screwing Around, Making the Wealthy Wealthier, War, Country, and Keeping His Wealthy Wife While Pretty Much Ignoring Her.

If Bush is a simpleton, McCain is a bitter person who feels entitled to the presidency because of his military genealogy -- and those years in a Hanoi prison he told us that he was too humble to mention but can't stop talking about.

Here is a guy who picked an airhead for a vice presidential class who couldn't pass a third grade civics test, and he claims that the only people who don't admire her leadership skills are conservatives who frequent Georgetown cocktail parties.
