Our Object All Sublime 

We shall achieve in time / To let the punishment fit the crime / The punishment fit the crime:
Hagee isn't just McCain's problem--he's a problem for the GOP as a whole, embraced by all the leading Republicans (and faux Democrats). And the Hagee problem illustrates the much broader dilemma faced by the GOP: when you build a coalition from varieties of religious intolerance, you can't be surprised when the various intolerances are intolerant of each other.
And make each prisoner pent / Unwillingly represent / A source of innocent merriment / Of innocent merriment! (Link courtesy of our BARBARian colleague Paperwight, who has characteristically enlightening things to say about these and other strange bedfellows here.)
