I watched only a few minutes of The View today, but here's an interesting tidbit that TP captured:

On ABC's The View today, host Joy Behar complained to John McCain that "you used to be more of the Maverick, then you sort of turned." "In what way?" McCain asked. "You became much more lockstep, I think, with your party, with George Bush's policies," Behar answered, adding, "I don't see the old John McCain. ... I understand why - you want to get elected." McCain issued this challenge in his defense:

I've been through this litany before, where I say, "ok, what specific area have I quote changed?" Nobody can name it. ... I am the same person and I have the same principles.

Here at C&L we'll take that challenge and it only took a few minutes to prove him wrong.

John Kerry did a good job on McCain

And we have: John McCain’s Evolution on Abortion

John McCain flip flops on Taxes on Social Security

Flip-Flopping On Oil Drilling Proves Lucrative For McCain

Or how about this one: McCain Sets a New Record: 10 Flip-Flops in Two Weeks
