The Integrity Pose

Andrew Sullivan fantasizes that John McCain's main problem is that he has too much integrity to win.

That was a plausible rationale 8 years ago.

But given his cave-in on torture, his strident support for a flaccid, ineffective surge, and his demagogic eagerness to tar advocates of withdrawal as advocating "surrender," I think we can retire that one here in 2007.

Though in fairness to Sullivan, he wrote that McCain may have "too much integrity for today's GOP." That still may be the case.
