Will The Real Maverick Please Stand Up?

The McCain-Palin pitch: “We’re mavericks.”  Basically, they say they do what’s right, not what’s popular.  But to call them “Mavericks” is a sin without acknowledging the real mavericks who came before them (or after McCain at least because he’s kinda old).

James Garner was the original TV Maverick.

Mel Gibson was “Maverick.”

Tom Cruise was “Maverick.”
