McCain steals votes in the wrong state and at the wrong season.
Maybe he isn’t a real conservative after all.
Note to the McCain team:
You’re not supposed to steal votes in primaries in Washington.
You’re supposed to steal votes in the general election in Florida.
Errors will happen, but that’s 9 months and 3000 miles off.
Maybe you guys aren’t representative of real conservative values after all.

Teaches about the methods of policy analysis about drug abuse control and crime control policy, working out the implications of two principles: that swift and certain sanctions don't have to be severe to be effective, and that well-designed threats usually don't have to be carried out.
