Beggar Prince at the King’s Table

Like you, I imagine, I have this soft spot in my heart for individuals who are their own person – who speak truth even when it doesn’t serve them.  We’re all thinking this weekend of John McCain.  I will never forget that town hall when he was running for president in 2008 and a woman stood up and claimed Barack Obama was an Arab and McCain said, “No ma’am.  He’s not.  He’s a decent family man, a citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues.”  As we all know now, it might have helped him to agree with that deluded woman, but John McCain, God bless him, was not willing to base his presidential campaign on a lie.
