… [E]ven the one thing that [McCain] likes to point to that he has been consistent about, national security, is a joke. He wants to secure the borders of Iraq, but not our own. How does that keep America strong?

The explanation for this paradox is that McCain, like President Bush, defines the national sphere of America as co-extensive with the whole world, which must be made safe for “democracy,” i.e., for equality. So fighting in Iraq keeps our “nation” secure, while opening America’s actual border with Mexico is an expression of “democracy.”
