McCain throws the fundies a bone

Surprised? Me neither! From Lifeshite:
"Sen. John McCain reached out to Catholic voters yesterday in Philadelphia at a gathering of Catholic lay leaders and clergy. The meeting, held at the venerable Union League on South Broad St., is one in an ongoing series being held nationwide by McCain and his Catholic surrogates - Sen. Sam Brownback, Gov. Frank Keating, and former Vatican ambassador Jim Nicholson." [...]

"The first issue addressed by McCain was abortion. He said that the "noblest words ever written" were "the inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." McCain believes that those words "apply to the unborn." He reminded the Philadelphia Catholics of his pro-life voting record, adding that he would "maintain that commitment" if elected president."
However, it might be prudent to note that's what Georgie said, too, and he was far more "owned" by the Christian Right than McCain. We shall see. That is, if McCain even makes it to the White House, which is anything but a slam-dunk.
