John McCain is the Republican Ozzy Osbourne

sabbath.jpgsabbath.jpgIn 1976, Ozzy Osbourne and his pals from Black Sabbath sold their soul for rock `n’ roll. In the 30 plus years since then, the heavy metal legend kept selling and selling until he became the drug-addled idiot we see today.What does this have to do with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain? Plenty.

Like the heavy metal maestro — who shares a birthday with me — McCain is selling his soul to be president. Recently, he sold out perhaps its most deeply held core belief against torture. Hell, he of all people ought to know how bad torture can be because ..well he was tortured himself while prisoner in Vietnam. I don’t know how else to explain his vote against an intelligence bill that said:

No individual in the custody or under the effective control of an element of the intelligence community or instrumentality thereof, regardless of nationality or physical location, shall be subject to any treatment or technique of interrogation not authorized by the United States Army Field Manual on Human Intelligence Collector Operations.

McCain’s explanation that he remains opposed to torture and waterboarding but voted against the bill because it would have applied military standards to the CIA makes no sense.

It looks like the Arizona senator just bit the head off the proverbial bat.
