John McCain is evil, part III

The latest issue of City Journal arrived a week ago and I am just getting around to reading it. The very first article I turn to provides a good reminder of just why I, and any right thinking American, should hate evil lunatic John McCain.

The rise of alternative media - political talk radio in the eighties, cable news in the nineties, and the blogosphere in the new millennium - has broken the liberal monopoly over news and opinion outlets. The Left understands acutely the implications of this revolution, blaming much of the Democratic Party's current
electoral trouble on the influence of the new media's vigorous conservative voices. Instead of fighting back with ideas, however, today's liberals quietly, relentlessly, and illiberally are working to smother this flourishing universe of political discourse under a tangle of campaign-finance and media regulations. Their campaign represents the most sustained attack on free political speech in the United States since the 1798 Alien and Sedition Acts. Though Republicans have the most to lose in the short run, all Americans who care about our most fundamental rights and the civic health of our democracy need to understand what's going on - and resist it.

We should not rest until McCain is driven out of American politics. Let him put a diaper on his head and go to Iran with the other censors.
