Bully


McCain has a new ad comparing himself to Churchill and Teddy Roosevelt.



But what was TR referring to when he said, “Surely there never was a fight better worth making than the one which we are in”?

Josh Narins discovers that it is the fight of the Bull Moose (Progressive) Party in 1912 against “this invisible government... the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics”. Possibly not the fight McCain had in mind.
