There are still many people who have serious policy disagreements with John McCain. I am one of those people. It is possible to believe that McCain is wrong on many of the issues conservative activists and talk show hosts care about, and still find him to be worthy of respect for his military service to our country. McCain doesn’t make it easy to like him, and conservatives are having a tough time trying to accept that he might be our nominee. I’m fighting that possibility myself.
But we can’t start attacking McCain’s military service. He’s wrong on so many issues. Let’s stick to arguments about policy, and leave the personal mudslinging to the nutroots and the Clinton campaign. We shouldn’t be ok with this message:
I found this picture on Race42008.com. It’s a picture that one of their bloggers took at a Mitt Romney event. People have strong feelings about illegal immigration. I understand that, but comparing John McCain to Benedict Arnold is wrong, and we shouldn’t have to resort to this type of personal attack. John McCain served our country honorably in the military, and he deserves our respect for that, if for no other reason.
