That is apparently how our “friend” John McCain described folks like us to Esquire, whose forthcoming issue includes what promises to be a breathless, teenage girl-esque cover story on him. He also seems to think the the GOP of, well, Ronald Reagan, Chuck Colson, and George W. Bush is betraying the legacy of Lincoln and not being a “big tent.” Here’s what he said:
I urge my friends who complain about the influence of the religious Right, get out there and get busy. That’s what they do! Now, if we believe in the Republican party of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt, the big-tent party, then we have to get out there and show that. The fact is, some of us have sat idly by while those very active people have basically set the agenda for our party. I get attacked everyday because I’m working with Ted Kennedy. How can I work with Kennedy? Because I want to get something done.
