Independence Party of New York backs McCain

The Independence Party of New York has endorsed John McCain for president, “the first time New York’s third-largest party has backed a major-party presidential candidate,” the AP reports. The party backed Ross Perot in 1996, John Hagelin in 2000, and Ralph Nader in 2004. Chairman Frank MacKay said the party, which has about 355,000 registered voters statewide, “sees McCain as an independent thinker.”

    Bad move. How could they do this? There were several decent third party options in Nader, Baldwin, and Barr. And McCain an independent thinker? Idiots! I hope selling out for the fake neo-con maverick comes back to bite them hard. There’s no excuse for this.
