Senator Palpatine: Staying true to a consistent philosophy is a bad thing.

Of course, when one has no consistent philosophy, it's kind of hard to stay true to it.

Here's a quote from John McCain-Feingold:

"In this crisis, as in all I may face in the future, I will not allow dogma to override common sense," the prepared remarks said.

What's the phrase I use in situations like this? Oh, yes, here it is -- Ayn Rand would vomit.

The biggest thing I dislike about the Clintons is that they have no core belief system, no principles they won't compromise to get what they want. And John McCain is just like them.

To be fair, dogmatic and consistent aren't synonyms. I recall a certain person writing that calling the city gubmnt to clean out the ditch wasn't anti-liberty, for example. Libertarian dogma would disagree. Libertarian principle wouldn't.
