Real McCain: Why Conservatives Don't Trust Him and Why Independents Shouldn't

Real McCain: Why Conservatives Don't Trust Him and Why Independents Shouldn't - Cliff Schecter I decided to read this to prepare myself for my conservative father's visit in late July. I knew most of the repulsive facts in here about Mr. Flip-Flopper from obsessivly reading politcal news on a daily basis. But Cliff Schecter does a nice job of compiling the confusing ethical twists and turns of John McCain's politcal career. The book is refreshingly free of gossipy news and instead focuses on John McCain's ever-changing positions in his quest for political fame and fortune. It's scary to think that - with the aid and abetting of the corporate media - John McCain actually has a chance of becoming our 44th president. Voters shouldn't have to think twice this November, but unfortunately many voters don't even bother to think the first time. Reading this book would be a good start to becoming an educated voter.
