What’s Good for the Goose is Bad for the Moderate

After a couple of spirited chats on finance reform here at gayconservative.org, I am happy to report that McCain gets first-hand experience of what happens when you “moderately” work with far-left nuts like Feingold.

In an article released tonight titled Democrats Seek FEC Probe of McCain, we see what happens years later after pandering to the left:

The national Democratic party wants campaign finance regulators to investigate whether Sen. John McCain would violate money-in-politics laws by withdrawing from the primary election’s public finance system.

McCain, who had been entitled to $5.8 million in federal funds for the primary, has decided to bypass the system so he can avoid spending limits between now and the GOP‘s national convention in September.

John McCain poses as a reformer but seems to think reforms apply to everyone but him,” Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Sunday

If McCain were prohibited from withdrawing from public financing, he would be severely limited in his campaign spending for the next six months. Under campaign finance rules, he would be allowed to spend only $54 million; as of the end of January, his campaign had already spent nearly $50 million.

I’m still waiting to see the good side of “moderate.”

The bright side?  At least McCain will have time to ponder this now before selecting his VP.

  1. Okay, I admit it. I’m still totally immature.

    Whenever anyone talks about someone/something being “probed” by the government I giggle.

    I giggle for a long time. And sometimes when I think about the phrase again, I giggle some more.

    They really need to adjust their semantics to the perpetual youth of Gen Xers like me.

  2. I agree Phil. But this is good news in the sense that McCain could begin to understand that the left has absolutely no interest in giving peace a chance with Republicans.

    He has two choices now:

    1.) Abandon the demands of his liberal friends and his concern for what the NY Times thinks of him.

    or….

    2.) Find a real creative way of stretching out a budget of $4 million between now and September.

    Right now, his best bet is to select option one and run Duncan Hunter as Vice-President.

    There’s a light at the end – then you and I won’t have to debate about him anymore. 😉

  3. I’ll take Duncan, but you’re just biased. Not gonna happen. I hope it will be a big-name Southern Conservative (hmmmmm). Just don’t give me Pawlenty or Sanford.

  4. AFW – don’t be a pervert. This IS a conservative blog, mind you. We believe that probes are a natural course of politics. Nothing like a Dem taking it up the a–.

  5. Trust me this will make him think. If not Duncan, maybe Romney perhaps.

    Which would be great for economics.

  6. Well, for goodness sake. How do people think conservatives get so many darn kids in the first place???

    But running mates… I’m thinking Micheal Steele might be a good choice, too. I see him noised about a bit, but not much.

  7. Actually it’s been well-documented that Christians/Conservatives have more sex, better sex, and receive more sexual satisfaction.

    You wanna have better sex? Become a conservative.

  8. Michael Steele and JC Watts make me happy. I’m not sure if it will happen this time around, but both guys are incredible.

    No comment, Steve. Let’s keep this clean.

    😛
