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"?
