McCain: Love him or fear him?

“Since love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must choose between them, it is far safer to be feared than loved.” –Niccolo Machiavelli

Something of note popped up over at The National Journal this morning and it got us in the mood to connect some dots (which is just above our collective level of intelligence).

It would seem that the folks at the NJ find it a bit odd that Chairman Dawson would be giving such a glowing review of the McCain Team in SC given some of his past vitriol:

“The Straight Talk Express has got four flat tires and a blown engine in South Carolina; that’s the way McCain left it,” says state Republican Party Chairman Katon Dawson. “It would take an awful lot to rev it back up.” 

Now we have Chairman Dawson praising McCain’s prowess in SC.  Some out there in the political ether, including the NJ think it has something to do with the fact that McCain is injecting his campaign in the race for SC Republican Party Chairman, and not for Chairman Dawson.  Read the NJ here.

 What do you think about Presidential campaigns using their muscle to pressure Party Officials and activists? Has this made Chairman Dawson see the light that is Straight Talk America?

    I don’t think Dawson has “seen the light” because of the pressure. He has his own reasons.

    The McCain camp probably doesn’t see itself as pressuring anyone here. They have their agenda and they are negotiating. Nothin’ wrong with that.

    That’s hardly “vitriol.”
