John McCain on Fox News: Muslims thanking god is no more offensive than Christians thanking god.

Where did this guy go in 2008?  Seriously.

There was nothing for McCain to gain for telling the truth on Fox News there and plenty for him to lose politically by saying that Christians do the same thing they find deplorable in other faiths to an audience guaranteed to be outraged at having their hypocrisy exposed.  And McCain set the record straight anyway.  Sure McCain sold himself out to the political machine in order to run for president, but there was integrity in that moment and I can respect that, as brief as it was.
