I Guess We Start Respecting Rights At No. 2

John McCain, May 2006: “I would rather have a clean government than one where, quote, First Amendment rights are being respected, that has become corrupt. If I had my choice, I’d rather have the clean government.”

John McCain, today: “This ruling does not mark the end of our struggle against those who seek to limit the rights of law-abiding citizens. We must always remain vigilant in defense of our freedoms.”

Have the scales fallen from his eyes? If so, I look forward to McCain’s amicus brief in the next challenge to McCain-Feingold–or maybe he’d just rather slightly alter his hero Teddy Roosevelt’s famous maxim, and teach the country to speak softly and carry a little gun.
