McCain is the referee in this free-for-all campaign. The ultimate arbiter, whose authority is accepted by all. He’s sort of the grand ayatollah of American politics.

What CNN fails to mention is that a grand ayatollah is exactly what American politics doesn’t need. Free speech isn’t supposed to be referreed, least of all by a person whose own motives are beyond question as some sort of pseudo-mystic divine authority. And CNN has that right on McCain. Democrats, the press and the new Know Nothing party – the “swing voter” – are having such a love affair with McCain that no one is willing to question whether perhaps shutting down free speech is just plain wrong.
