One more reason they can’t make John McCain the Evil candidate

>> Ace rightly sums up the idea that “the media attempts to portray every single Republican candidate as Stupid, Crazy, Evil, or Out of Touch (Old) or combinations thereof. Every single one.”  Slate reminds us why one of those categories is going to be so hard to sell after years of building McCain up: “McCain spoke of how it affected him when Udall took him in hand. It was a simple act of affection and admiration, and for that reason it meant all the more to McCain. It was one man saying to another, We disagree in politics but not in life. It was one man saying to another, party political differences cut only so deep. Having made that step, they found much to agree upon and many useful ways to work together. This is the reason McCain keeps coming to see Udall even after Udall has lost his last shred of political influence. The politics were never all that important.”
