John McCain Sucks Up To Conservatives In A Totally Straight, Conservative-Friendly Way

John McCain, the presumptive GOP nominee, has been under fire from right-wing members of the Republican Party for not truly representing their conservative views. In order to assuage them, McCain spoke at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which kicked off its three-day session Thursday in Washington, D.C.

How far will John McCain go to stop the daily trashing he's been getting from the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and the rest of the right-wing talk show cabal? Although McCain's speech was little more than a long and pandering laundry list of exaggerated right-wing bona fides--he did manage to dress it up a bit for performance's sake.
