McCain and his mavericky denial of being a maverick
The world's most famous ex-maverick Maverick
Manu Raju and Jonathan Martin report for the Arizona Republic: The 'M' word: 'Maverick' topic agitates McCain 10/14/10. Our most famous Maverick, the maverick who the pundits love to gush over for his unshakable integrity and maverickness, doesn't like being called a maverick right now.
In fact, the Great Maverick is downright touchy about it, it seems:
John McCain — who built his political persona and his 2008 presidential campaign around the claim that he's a "maverick" — told Newsweek recently: "I never considered myself a maverick."Shorter McCain: I'm not a maverick. Don't call me a maverick! I said don't call me no stinkin' maverick!!!
It's tough being a non-mavericky Maverick.
