More Evidence of McCain's Character

Since many people want to attack Obama for the company he keeps, let's talk about McCain.
He just canceled a fundraiser put on by Clayton Williams, a texas oil magnate who bundled more than $300,000 for McCain. This, after McCain somehow "just discovered" that Williams is a mean-spirited, sexist, asshole.
Back in 1990, Williams made the following comment about Democrat Ann Richards, his opponent (and the eventual winner) for Governor of Texas: He would "head her and hoof her and drag her through the dirt" like roping a cow.
Then, in an incredibly vile comment about rape, he said it was like bad weather: "If it's inevitable, just relax and enjoy it."
McCain somehow just found out about this? Impossible, considering it was HUGE news back then, running in the NY Times and other national newspapers. McCain said he has no intentions of returning the money bundled by Williams. Combined with his own comments on abortion and calling his own wife a trollop and a cunt, I feel confident calling McCain an asshole. He's a mean-spirited, insensitive person. Any progressive, liberal, feminist, religious person, or anyone with empathy should feel dirty voting for a guy like McCain.
