John McCain: just another sheep in "maverick's" clothing.

Friends and relations,

John McCain's Thanksgiving Day "Maverick" balloon has started to lose altitude.

What does "maverick" mean when you vote with President Bush 95% of the time?

More amusingly, from Harper's Index:

  • Number of times that U.S. media have called John McCain a “maverick” since 1995: 6,757
  • Percentage change between 2001 and 2007 in the number of instances per year: +76

I wonder what it costs to have the media start calling you a "maverick"?

Tiddly pom.
