Rightward Ho!

A mere three days after endorsing abstinence at a hotdog and ice cream social (seriously), presidential hopeful John McCain has now come out in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade.

"I do not support Roe versus Wade. It should be overturned," the Arizona senator told about 800 people in South Carolina, one of the early voting states.
No room for misinterpretation there. That's some genuine Straight Talk from the Straight Talk Express.

One of McCain's biggest liabilities, even among those inclined to share his positions, is his age. He'll be 71 in August. Certainly the best way to undermine fears that he's an out-of-touch, doddering old geezbag is to blaze radical new political trails like "Keep it your pants, kids!" and "Nice girls don't do that."
