If one’s party turns on one, does that make one a maverick?

Because, if it does then McCain is officially on the path to once again becoming a maverick.

After reading this scathing ed-op by George Wills: Will’s ed-op and a recent Wall Street Journal article: McCain’s scapegoat I’ve come to believe that either John McCain is trying to re-establish his maverick status by doing dumb shit that no one, not even his own party, can possibly support him on or this is all a master plan (which would mean Rove’s doing) to re-establish his maverick status and his fellow Republicans have been instructed to launch attacks at his ideas, for a while- just long enough for everyone to get a whiff of what McCain’s cooking – then bam! He can say “See, I told y’all I was a maverick” if and when he gets something right.

I don’t think it will work, if it’s true.

what do y’all think?

    No, he certainly is a maverick.

    The conservative base never liked him.

    There’s a big difference between not liking him and saying things that might put the other party in the top slot. I don’t think they disliked him THAT much.

    You’d be surprised.

    Read some Dobson statements from a few years back. Or Limbaugh. The religious right, historically, cannot stand John McCain.
