John McCain, proud liberal media-anointed maaaaaaaverick Republican, October 14, 2008:
MCCAIN: It’s well-known that I have not been elected Miss Congeniality in the United States Senate nor with the administration. I have opposed the president on spending, on climate change, on torture of prisoner, on – on Guantanamo Bay. On a — on the way that the Iraq War was conducted. I have a long record and the American people know me very well and that is independent and a maverick of the Senate and I’m happy to say that I’ve got a partner that’s a good maverick along with me now.
John McCain, endangered established Republican incumbent, attempting desperately to shed the moniker he (and running mate Sarah “Send the maaaverick back to the United States Senate” Palin) embraced over and over and over again, Newsweek, April 3, 2010:
“Maverick” is a mantle McCain no longer claims; in fact, he now denies he ever was one. “I never considered myself a maverick,” he told me. “I consider myself a person who serves the people of Arizona to the best of his abilities.”
Can we get a little Joe “You lie!” Wilson up in here?
