John McCain is a jerk. Alternately a bully and a whiner, and a bald-faced liar to perhaps a greater degree than even George Bush and Dick Cheney, McCain is running a stupid and mephitic campaign that insults even Americans of average intelligence virtually every day.
I feel the same way. I never really bought into the McCain myth, but neither did he seem a loathsome jerk like, say, Mitt Romney. Now he's a loathsome jerk.
