How dare your needs get in the way of Saint Maverick's photo-op?

He's getting more like Bush every day:

An aide to Iowa's governor said Thursday that Republican presidential candidate John McCain ignored the governor's request to cancel a campaign visit amid a massive flood recovery effort in the state.
McCain toured flood-damaged sites in Iowa on Thursday, including the town of Columbus Junction in the southeast.

Patrick Dillon, Gov. Chet Culver's chief of staff, said the governor was concerned that McCain's trip would divert local law enforcement from the flood recovery effort to provide security for McCain.

David Roederer, who chairs McCain's campaign in Iowa, said McCain's trip didn't hamper Iowa's recovery operation. He said McCain proceeded with the visit because the campaign was providing much of its own security.

"There was really no state resources diverted," Roederer said.

Note how that assurance doesn't come from Iowa officials, but from the McCain campaign.

Pathological narcissism? Check.

Daddy issues? Check.

Insistence in staying in Iraq till "victory" is achieved but not defining what that would look like? Check.

Selling America's coasts to Big Oil? Check.

So just where DOES John McCain differ from George W. Bush?
