So now comes forward John McCain,
A high-tech version of Gawain
When with his steed, a Navy plane.
He says he’s forming his campaign
Committee, which will ascertain
If someone known for speaking plain
And taking stands that are the bane
Of those protecting their domain
With campaign cash that they obtain
From fat cats who might then ordain
In laws some clauses that pertain
To only those whose favors gain
The sort of access that’s germane
Can, in a party whose disdain
For folks who go against the grain
Has caused reformers only pain,
Be nominated to regain
The White House for a four-year reign.
Or, as the experts all maintain,
Does John McCain campaign in vain?

Thank you for reading The Nation

We hope you enjoyed the story you just read, just one of the many incisive, deeply-reported articles we publish daily. Now more than ever, we need fearless journalism that shifts the needle on important issues, uncovers malfeasance and corruption, and uplifts voices and perspectives that often go unheard in mainstream media.

Throughout this critical election year and a time of media austerity and renewed campus activism and rising labor organizing, independent journalism that gets to the heart of the matter is more critical than ever before. Donate right now and help us hold the powerful accountable, shine a light on issues that would otherwise be swept under the rug, and build a more just and equitable future.

For nearly 160 years, The Nation has stood for truth, justice, and moral clarity. As a reader-supported publication, we are not beholden to the whims of advertisers or a corporate owner. But it does take financial resources to report on stories that may take weeks or months to properly investigate, thoroughly edit and fact-check articles, and get our stories into the hands of readers.

Donate today and stand with us for a better future. Thank you for being a supporter of independent journalism.
