Up to now we’ve heard plenty of Democrats say they didn’t support the Obamacare bill (to the point that they’ve spent more money on anti-Obamacare ads than pro-Obamacare ads), or bragging that they didn’t vote with Nancy Pelosi X-amount of the time, but this is the first time I can recall that a Democrat candidate is admitting to voting for John McCain in 2008:

Conservative Rep. Gene Taylor (D-Miss.) said he voted for GOP Sen. John McCain for president in 2008, not Barack Obama.

The revelation by Taylor, an 11-term incumbent facing a tough reelection battle, is one of the most extreme examples yet of a Democrat distancing himself from his party’s unpopular leaders.

Taylor, who has been taking step after to step to highlight his independence from Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), told a reporter for The Sun Herald of South Mississippi about his secret ballot two years ago.

“I did not vote for Obama. I voted for Sen. McCain,” Taylor told reporter Maria Recio, she said in an interview with The Hill. “Better the devil you know.”

Now desperate Dems are referring to Obama as a “devil”? How far Hope has fallen.

Taylor voted against the stimulus boondoggle and against the health care double-boondoggle, so at least he’s earned his distance a little more than some of the others.
