McCain's Friends and Supporters

The John McCain of Y2K must have somehow been bodysnatched, or he's finally figured out that you can't win the Republican nomination without crawling into bed with some seriously deranged folks. First, Jerry Falwell. Then, super-crazy Pastor John Hagee. Hagee is that particular brand of scary that would only be fucking nuts, if not for his ability to influence other people. In this case, a candidate for US President.

Hagee has attacked Catholics. This website has done that as well, although mostly because of the fact that several contributors to this website are still recovering from their Catholic upbringing, and not because we believe, as Hagee does, that Catholics are going to hell. Although you have to admit that it would be just a little funny if that happened.

One of the things that McCain admires most about Hagee, however, is Hagee's support of Israel. What McCain either doesn't realize or is too busy counting Evangelical votes to care is that Hagee only supports Israel because he believes that Israel is where the end of times is supposed to occur, not because he likes and respects Jews. If given the opportunity, it's likely that Hagee would convert 'em all.

When asked to renounce Hagee's endorsement, McCain declined, which is evidence that McCain has, in fact, sold his soul to the devil.
