I've heard that story told before. But I've never met the person that could make a decent case on what positions McCain changed between 2000 and 2008 that suddenly made him unacceptable.
In reality the only thing the changed was him winning the Republican nomination as opposed to losing it. You guys talk a good game, but at the end of the day the only thing you truly believe is that the only good Republican is a dead (politically) Republican. So you'll always talk up the Huntsmans and cry about the Romneys, even though the difference in real-world policy would be microscopic.
Rah Rah Rah! The party cheerleaders reliably stay in line during game time, even if they backbite and gossip a little on the bus ride home.
