John McCain Is Ready to Be All Maverick-y Again

No really, it’s true! I read it on the internet, right next to the kittiez videoz. “Friends and colleagues say they have noticed a marked change in the 74-year-old Arizona Senator,” reports Time. “His steady march to the right, which began during his presidential campaign and ended with his re-election to a fifth Senate term last year, has halted.” He’s doing things like conversating with Barack and saying nice things about dead Americans killed by crazy Americans. “It appears Mac is back on track to be a player of significance and importance on the center stage of American politics,” says old pal and former minion Mark McKinnon. “The lion in winter is starting to roar.” And nothing says maverick like admitting defeat and falling into line when you’ve run out of options.
