John McCain invokes the power of positive thinking

John McCain is gonna get extra Christ-y on Iraq

Here is a novel apporach to the war in Iraq. Instead of any attempt at trying to find a real solution, John McCain feels the most realistic approach is to pray for it to go away.

McCain On Iraq War: ‘This Issue Isn't Going To Be Around In 2008'
In the February ‘07 issue of Vanity Fair, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is quoted telling a group of conservatives last October that the Iraq war "isn’t going to be around in 2008."

According to Vanity Fair, an audience member told McCain, "The war's the big issue. Some kind of disengagement — it's going to have to happen. It’s a big issue for you…in 24 months." McCain responded:

"I do believe this issue isn’t going to be around in 2008. I think it’s going to either tip into civil war..." He breaks off, as if not wanting to rehearse the handful of other unattractive possibilities. "Listen," he says, "I believe in prayer. I pray every night." And that’s where he leaves his discussion of the war this morning: at the kneeling rail. Vanity Fair via Think Progress

There was a time when I used to respect and support McCain but that seems like a long time ago now. How could someone who seemed so strong turn into such a mouthpiece.

I don't think he even believes what he's saying.

I used to have some respect for the man myself. It was terrible what Bush did to him during the presidential primary back in 2000. But you are right, now he seems to say whatever will get him in with the far-right, even when it clearly goes against his previously stated principles. Now I just think he is dangerous.

He also has been rallying against free speech on blogs.
