McCain as Janus

A great image (from Crooks and Liars) debunking one of St. John McCain's talking points about himself. Here's Matt Ortega:

McCain on Roe v. Wade, Associated Press, 2/18/07:

I do not support Roe versus Wade. It should be overturned,” the Arizona senator told about 800 people in South Carolina, one of the early voting states. [emphasis added]

McCain on Roe v. Wade, Washington Post, 8/24/99:

“I’d love to see a point where it is irrelevant, and could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary,” McCain told the Chronicle in an article published Friday. “But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade, which would then force X number of women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations.” [emphasis added]

The John McCain Presidential Pander Parade continues.

Indeed. It seems like McCain is in big trouble. Giuliani is leading in most polls of Republicans that I've seen (e.g. this one from CBS).
