Who needs the McCain BBQ-loving scared lapdogs of the MSM when the women of The View can grill McCain on critical issues such as reproductive freedom, the Supreme Court, and the separation of church and state.  He comes out looking really bad, and lies like a rug while he’s at it. (HuffPost, which has much more video).

McCain was also pushed on his stance on abortion, saying he thought Roe v. Wade was a bad decision. Saying he’d nominate justices who interpret the constitution, Whoopi asked if that meant she’d be returned to slavery…Whoopi also pushed McCain on the separation of church and state, and if he believes in it, “did it not give you a moment of pause” to choose Sarah Palin as his running mate. He responded in part, “God has a plan for the world and that we should do what we can to lead as good a lives as we can…”

Unfortunately, Cindy McCain didn’t get the same treatment; cohost Elisabeth Hasselbeck hosted a luncheon for her at last week’s RNC, so I guess no one was up for asking her about her criminal drug scam and her husband’s abuse of office to try to cover it up.

And for bonus points…

McCain: Mayors, Governors Don’t Have Nat’l Security Experience

This needs to circulate, particularly with a transcript (anyone up for adding it to the comments?). From a debate in October 2007, John McCain’s caught in a huge flip flop. So what changed between then and now, or is his judgment on these matters so flimsy and reckless that it calls into question his fitness to be Commander in Chief?


“I have had a strong and a long relationship on national security, I’ve been involved in every national crisis that this nation has faced since Beirut, I understand the issues, I understand and appreciate the enormity of the challenge we face from radical Islamic extremism,” the Senator declared. “I am prepared. I am prepared. I need no on-the-job training.  I wasn’t a mayor for a short period of time. I wasn’t a governor for a short period of time.”
