Helping McCain: The Man Needs An intervention

Posted: Updated:

I spoke yesterday before the Washington Post editorial board on some of the work I do outside my day job.

A major theme is that John McCain has a lot to offer, but over the last year, we've heard nothing from him; instead, we hear from the predatory lobbyists putting words in his mouth. That's why he seems to have flip flopped so much recently; the best example, by undermining the troops by attacking the new GI Bill, while misrepresenting it.

I suggest that the people who admire him (including me) find a way to stage an intervention to free him.
