Because John McCain is a decent, smart, humorous man . . .

he may not have a chance to be President.

But his position on torture and (at least as important) his way of articulating it is completely compelling. Read this:

“One of the things that kept us going when I was in prison in North Vietnam was that we knew that if the situation were reversed that we would not be doing to our captors what they were doing to us,” he said. . . .

“I want to tell you, Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson, and Mitt Romney all think it is O.K.,” he said. [McCain should have added Dubya to that list.]
I am proud to be an American when a candidate for a party I normally oppose can be so compelling on such an important issue.

Who are we? Al Qaeda lite, sprinkled with holy water from Jesus? (That's what Dubya has created.)

Or America?
