Brave New Films, the company behind the documentaries Outfoxed and Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price has taken it upon itself to educate Americans about “the real McCain,” with a website devoted to the task.  Ostensibly they’re doing it because “corporate media won’t cover the story.”  Granted, the film company has expertly edited many contradictory remarks, but have they really shed light on the potential policies of this historically centrist maverick?  This video has been floating all over the interweb…

I tend to be wary of such gross simplification, and I find it disheartening, but it does raise interesting questions about what Arianna Huffington calls “The new McCain.” In order to clinch his party’s nomination, the once centrist Arizona Senator has publicly changed his positions on everything from tax cuts to campaign finance reform, but how might he govern?

An important question, raised and spread with an unprecedented agility.  Hopefully,  a conversation-starter on McCain’s potential governance and not just fodder for thoughtless partisanship.
