Replacing John McCain

Perhaps there was more than meets the eye to the John Shadegg retirement story I linked to the other day. He, along with several others Arizona politicos, may be looking to take John McCain’s place if the senator steps down to concentrate on his presidential run. I’d rather see Jeff Flake get the seat, but just about anybody would be an improvement over the man who gave us an amnesty bill (thankfully killed), McCain-Feingold, and many other awful pieces of legislation — and who, despite his own experiences at the hands of the Vietnamese, earlier this week voted against on the ban on CIA waterboarding. From torturee to torturer — you’ve come a long way, John.
