From the Washington Wire at THE WALL STREET JOURNAL:
Sen. John McCain, who was mocked for saying recently that he never considered himself a maverick, when he had repeatedly said just that, sort of took it back on Sunday.
“What I was saying was that I have considered myself a person who is a fighter,” McCain told “Fox News Sunday.” “I wouldn’t be around today if I wasn’t a fighter. I fight for the things that I believe in, and sometimes that’s called a maverick. Sometimes that’s called a partisan. And people can draw their own conclusions.”

The Ugly New McCain
Following his loss to George W. Bush in the 2000 South Carolina primary, John McCain did something extraordinary: He confessed to lying about how he felt about the Confederate battle flag, which he actually abhorred. “I broke my promise to always tell the truth,” McCain said. Now he has broken that promise so completely that the John McCain of old is unrecognizable. He has become the sort of politician he once despised.
