John McCain’s Straight Talk Calls Himself Liberal

John McCain calls himself a “proud conservative, liberal Republican” at a town hall meeting in Texas yesterday, and he expects the debate to be “dispirited.” It was a Freudian slip that will be red meat for those right wing pundits that already can’t stand McCain. At the meeting McCain said, “I will conduct a respectful debate, now it will be dispirited, it will be spirited because there are stark differences. I am a proud conservative, liberal Republican— conservative Republican, Hello! Easy there.” Then he restarted and said, “Let me say this. I am a proud conservative Republican.” He then goes on to tell the audience that “Senator Obama has, according to the National Journal, the most liberal record in the United States Senate.”
