"Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen admits that in the past he - along with OTHER members of the press - sometimes metaphorically experienced goosebumps every time Senator John McCain opened his mouth. Not any more. In an op-ed entitled "The Ugly New McCain," Cohen complains that the Republican presidential candidate has now "become the sort of politician he once despised."
"According to Cohen, McCain has "soiled" his integrity by capitulating to the right and for standing by his false political advertisements." His opportunistic and irresponsible choice of Sarah Palin as his political heir -- the person in whose hands he would leave the country -- is a form of personal treason, a betrayal of all he once stood for," Cohen writes."

Again, to all my Republicans friends who denied it when I tried to make a case that John McCain was receiving favorable, even deferential, press treatment, I say HA! If a Washington Post staff writer can admit it, then why can't you? So there, it's now a fact. I can only hope they tear him down before November.
