McCain Agonistes

Matt Lewis puts his finger on it, as recounted to the Politico by a "McCain source":

[S]peaking at a private event, [McCain] accepted praise for his little-appreciated anti-abortion stance—only to remind the conservative crowd that he also supported stem cell research.

"How many times have I seen that?" mused this person [the McCain source]. "He just cannot keep himself on message, he just can't keep himself from telling people where he disagrees with them."
