On Signature Issues, McCain Has Shown Some Inconsistencies in the Senate. No way! You're totally shitting me!
Senator John McCain likes to present himself as the candidate of the "Straight Talk Express" who does not pander to voters or change his positions with the political breeze. But the fine print of his record in the Senate indicates that he has been a lot less consistent on some of his signature issues than he has presented himself to be so far in his presidential campaign.
Thanks for finally catching up, New York Times!

Perhaps next time, you'll see fit to include McCain's enormous flip-flop on campaign finance reform and lobbying, which is his real signature issue, in addition to his "turnarounds" on Bush's tax cuts, immigration, torture, abortion, and Rumsfeld's efficacy.
