Hell, the McCain camp had to roll out a mash note from Gary Bauer today — on the National Review Online, no less — to try and sway wayward GOP doubters of McCain’s sexual purity bona fides. So it looks like the usual GOP suspects are less-than-sold on McCain as well.
Can the nation afford another four years of a presidency based on pandering to the anti-science crowd? When it comes to John McCain, he wants to encourage you to say no. At least that’s what he says when he’s courting evangelical voters:
The Arizona lawmaker is scheduled to speak Sunday night to about 1,500 middle and high school students about abstaining from premarital sex. Abstinence and abortion loom large as issues in this first-in-the-South primary state in the heart of the Bible Belt.
"Senator McCain has a long legislative record of supporting abstinence-based initiatives in his record in the U.S. Senate," said Trey Walker, McCain’s South Carolina campaign director. "He thinks that abstinence is healthier and should be promoted in our society for young people."
Because nothing says "keep that aspirin between your legs, girls" like a hot dog social with John McCain. Yeppers.
