Jen, you’re right. The McCain ad on the border fence is some kind of new low in the annals of political cynicism, but the thing is, maybe when you’re being cynical, you’re best to do it whole hog. In this regard, John McCain might be following in the footsteps of my old friend Arianna Huffington. When she moved to Hollywood and realized that the position of Conservative on the West Coast was taken by David Horowitz, she just…Went Left. Instantly. No painful journey. No tortured realization that some of the things she had believed she no longer did. She seen her opportunity and she took it, and now she is a leading light on the port side of the political ship. By jumping in whole hog with the very people he attacked only three years ago, McCain is trying to save himself from an unprecedented political fate — from presidential nomination to primary ouster in less than two years. Understandable that he’d go to extreme lengths to avoid that. But really, did he have to use the weird invocation of the phrase from the early horror movie Freaks (“one of us…one of us”) to do it?
