Odd Coincidence

It occurred to me as it did Andrew Sullivan that the torture bill deal might have something to do with McCain's political future. My cynical suspicion is that McCain promised to pardon any top administration officials that would be in trouble under this new law, in exchange for their allowing it to pass and backing him in the next election. It's a really revolting idea, but those are the type I tend to have when I'm thinking about this administration and its politicking. Somewhat less revolting, but still unsettling, is the idea that I'm thinking like Andrew Sullivan.
