Huh: John McCain Once Again Stabbing GOP in Back Helping Sway Another Democrat to Defect

Well... as John McClane said: Welcome to the party, pal!

No, but seriously? As much of a dick as McCain was/is, he seems really pissed off by Barack Obama, and maybe pissed off at himself for basically agreeing to be Barack Obama's handmaiden, his dupe, his easy lay. He's been a lot more forceful for our side since then.

Republicans are stepping up their efforts to persuade more House Democrats to switch parties and are zeroing in on a second-term Pennsylvanian who is not ruling out such a move.

Democratic Rep. Chris Carney received a phone call Wednesday from Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) asking him to consider becoming a Republican, a top GOP official told POLITICO.

A spokesman for Carney declined to say if the congressman was considering such a switch.

“No further comment at this time,” said Carney spokesman Josh Drobnyk, who would only confirm that the call took place.

In a brief interview, McCain declined to offer details about the conversation.

“I just said, ‘Whatever you do, I know that you’ll make the right decision for the country,’” said the Arizonan.
