After all this talk of being a Maverick, I think my official count of hearing the word Maverick is up to ten thousand and one. One of the original Mavericks tend to disagree with McCain’s self-proclaimed maverickism. The fact of the matter is, in literal sense McCain is no maverick. Some on who consistently votes along party lines as he has cannot be considered such. As the article states, the word Maverick came to be during the 1800’s when Sam Maverick did not brand his cattle, in turn, unbranded cattle were called mavericks. The maverick name continued with Maury Jr. who was a civil libertarian and lawyer who defended people in the court of law that many people would not because it would not advance their agenda; people who resisted he draft during that era are many of the people that Jr. represented therefore earning the Maverick name…. McCain has not. I will let dead dog lye now….. Moving on to more important issues, McCain’s campaign is in TROUBLE. Being behind as of right now, in BOTH battle ground states of MO and NC, and recently giving up on another, some DEM strategists are now predicting landslide. The fact of the matter is that McCain is losing precious ground in make or break states, even with his recent endorsement from the NRA after it looked like there was a possibility that support would go missing, it doesn’t seem as if McCain is going to be able to rally enough supporters to win the election. His performance in the last debate was disgraceful, his attack Obama rampage doesn’t seem to be very effective and he is left scrambling. The proof is in the electoral map, McCain is facing such a deficit right now, that this late in the game is going to prove fatal. Obama has it to lose.
