McCain's Steroids Push Puts Him in '08 Mix
Sen. John McCain (news, bio, voting record), the straight-talking Republican who often challenges the GOP establishment, has taken on a headline-grabbing issue — steroids in baseball — and generated talk of a presidential bid in 2008.
Well, I guess that explains it. It just confirms that, far from being the maverick, "straight-talker" he (and the adoring media) portrays himself to be, he's just another sleazball politician, happily exceeding Constitutional mandate in order to generate attention.
That's the other thing that bugs me about him. The fact he's a media darling. The media just likes him because he's a non-conservative Republican. I hope the GOP can field some better choices in 4 years.
And another thing: what the heck kind of issue is that to generate interest in a Presidential bid? Is America at home worrying "We really need a leader to fix steroids in sports"?
I know I'm a little behind the curve on this one, but McCain is pushing steroids? Is the MLB players' union aware of this?Post a Comment
