McCain Kissing Some Rings in WNC

Senator John is outside Asheville today paying fealty to one branch of American churchiness represented by Billy Graham and his son Franklin.

McCain's denial that the visit has anything to do with politics is hilarious (and logic-defying):
"I think the Graham family really transcends politics in America. Billy Graham was an adviser to every president and so I'm not sure that there is any -- there certainly is no political aspect to the meeting that I will have."

McCain has been trying to convince Christian conservatives that he's one of them, and hanging out with the Grahams might help.

Plus McCain and Franklin Graham have a lot of mutual Middle Eastern war-lovin' to discuss. Franklin seemed to welcome the Iraq War as an expansion opportunity for his brand of evangelistic Christianity.
