Maybe I'm misreading you, but I think you're suggesting there's some support for McCain here. I don't think you'll find it. For Conservatives, McCain was our next-to-last choice for President. If the Republican party had chosen ANYONE else, Obama probably wouldn't have won.
What about the Syracuse Orangemen. Orangemen is to Irish people as the KKK is to Black people.
Unfortunately, David Yeagley has passed away. But y'all should Google his name, and read what he's written.
Thinking further: There is a chapter on shopping at a state store, where you buy NOT what you want or what you need, but you buy what is there at the moment. The truth of this was driven home to me a few years ago when there was an exchange program set up to have sister nuclear power plants in the US and the Soviet Union. A delegation from Kalinin came to our plant (Harris) in early December. There were about a dozen engineers and administrators and one translator, a young lady. They took them to Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh. Upon entering the first store, the young lady immediately started crying. She said it had taken her 2 weeks to gather enough food from the state stores for her to leave her family to come here because there was nothing on the shelves there. But in all the stores here, there was so much stuff, that it was piled in the aisles. And people were buying the stuff as fast as they could, whereupon more stuff would be put out to replace it. As an additional note, she arrived in the US with one pair of blue jeans, of which she was extremely proud. The women at work loaded her up, and she went home with at least 20.
I have that book too. It's probably the best, and most accurate, depiction of communist society in print.

Over the years, I've encountered a lot of people who have sufficient intelligence to do many things, but who instead prefer to engage in more physical work. These people are not stupid, but they absolutely REFUSE to think. Since they're not averse to hard work, I call them "Brain Lazy". They'll tote that barge, and lift that bale, but they will NOT use the lever on the table next to them to do it easier, faster, and more precisely.
From a strictly pragmatic point of view, poor people don't have any money to spend. So we'd like poor people to become rich people so they can spend the money they earn.

I agree with you about O'Reilly. But as for Ann Coulter, if she has any shrillness, it's only because she is tired of being the smartest person in whatever room she should find herself.

Not to mention, Wrightsville Beach is only minutes away from the main campus. Carolina and Kure beaches too.
Does not the DC Appeals Court contain one Janice Rogers Brown? If I were president, she would be my FIRST choice for SCOTUS.

I know this is satire, but the brilliance of Loyal Dem is that in his satire, he EXACTLY exposes the liberal mindset. This is what they REALLY BELIEVE.
