McCain’s Memphis Malarky

Share

John McCain is going to Memphis tomorrow to visit the National Civil Rights Museum.

Nice change of pace for a man who in 1989 voted against the establishment of the birthday of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a national holiday.

Thankfully, McCain failed and the holiday honoring Dr. King was eventually established.

Maybe this’ll be a sign of things to come and he’ll flip-flop on his flip-flop in order to support the ridiculous Bush tax cuts for the rich and approving of torture which demeans America and puts our troops in additional peril.
