Senator McCain: "Clean Government" More Important than First Amendment Rights

Arizona Senator and Presidential hopeful John McCain, appearing on the Don Imus show, said that "I would rather have a clean government than one where quote First Amendment rights are being respected, that has become corrupt. If I had my choice, I'd rather have the clean government."
McCain's assertion reminds me, yet again, exactly why the Arizona Republican cannot be trusted with the presidency, or indeed, with any high office. I don't have any input into who the people of Arizona send to the Senate, but I have my own voice when it comes to the presidency, and I will never vote for a candidate who displays such disregard for the values of free political speech that our country is predicated upon.

Yeah, what planet is McCain from? Most Americans, at least conservative ones, pretty much believe that 1st amendment rights eventually lead to cleaning up corruption - if exercised. Does he mean gov't needs to police itself? Yeah - ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! Good luck.
