The good Doctor took a moment away from berating dads into showing their penises off to their boys to complain about McCain:
"I am deeply disappointed the Republican Party seems poised to select a nominee who did not support a Constitutional amendment to protect the institution of marriage, voted for embryonic stem-cell research to kill nascent human beings, opposed tax cuts that ended the marriage penalty, has little regard for freedom of speech, organized the Gang of 14 to preserve filibusters in judicial hearings, and has a legendary temper and often uses foul and obscene language.
"I am convinced Sen. McCain is not a conservative, and in fact, has gone out of his way to stick his thumb in the eyes of those who are. He has sounded at times more like a member of the other party. McCain actually considered leaving the GOP caucus in 2001, and approached John Kerry about being Kerry's running mate in 2004. McCain also said publicly that Hillary Clinton would make a good president. Given these and many other concerns, a spoonful of sugar does NOT make the medicine go down. I cannot, and will not, vote for Sen. John McCain, as a matter of conscience.
"But what a sad and melancholy decision this is for me and many other conservatives. Should Sen. McCain capture the nomination as many assume, I believe this general election will offer the worst choices for president in my lifetime. I certainly can't vote for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama based on their virulently anti-family policy positions. If these are the nominees in November, I simply will not cast a ballot for president for the first time in my life. These decisions are my personal views and do not represent the organization with which I am affiliated. They do reflect my deeply held convictions about the institution of the family, about moral and spiritual beliefs, and about the welfare of our country."
Seriously, did he expect the Republican establishment to go for Tax Hike Mike? Or Freddie "Snooze Bar" Thompson? Did he have any faith in Multiple Choice Mitt? What angle is he working? Or is he just mad because he realizes the GOP establishment always put the Religious Right's agenda behind no-bid contracts for super-rich buddies and tax cuts, tax cuts, tax cuts?
And I think this and Ann Coulter's statement are pretty good reminders that no matter how fashionable the "Hillary/Barack can't beat McCain" arguments are when supporting your own fave candidate, there isn't much truth there.
