Given McCain’s votes, it’s ‘only fitting’ that Obama won

To the Editor:

Some may call it ironic, I call it only fitting.

“That One,” “The Man” who voted against the federal holiday recognizing Martin Luther King Jr. back in 1983 and in 1987 and supported his Republican governor’s successful rescinding of the holiday, had his rear handed to him on Election Day by our nation’s first African-American president.

Some say you can’t teach an old redneck new tricks, but even Toby Keith endorsed Obama this time around.
