True To POW Days, McCain Accepting Relentless Pounding By Enemy With GraceWashington--John McCain has been known all his life as a man devoid of predictable conventions and telegraphable intents. In recent days, the point couldn't have been made clearer when he selected Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin, to become the first female Vice presidential running mate for the republican party.
Now, facing being handed the anvil of responsibility in a housing credit ocean created by democrats, McCain stand to stun yet again.
"The man's propensity for bending over backwards is unparalleled," said one insider to the McCain/Palin ticket. ""Just watch the sheer agile facility with which he now bends forward."
McCain is expected to rend his clothes ans assume sackcloth and ashes until the House or Senate approves the Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac bailout, which is widely known as a scandal involving democratic extortion, forcing the agencies to deliver loans to those with no money in the first place. Still, McCain asserts that blaming those responsible for their responsibility would be "irresponsible."
"I'm just not going to demean my senatorial office or the nature of the political process by winning," says McCain. "This will be perhaps the most gentlemanly loss in political history. mark my words, friends."
The credit for such tenacity is largely attributed to the daily buffeting McCain suffered at the hands of his captors in Vietnam--an ordeal that lasted five years.
"If anyone knows how to sustain endless unrequited backhands and jackslaps, it's McCain," said one known insider. "If anyone can sit for a full election cycle and not fight back, it's John McCain. You watch and see."
