John McCain: Very Post-Modern

So on my Washington Post Highlight’s section of iGoogle, I see the headline “McCain Seeks to Reclaim Maverick Image.”

Is it even possible to self-consciously be a maverick? Making unpopular decisions because you believe them to be right may lead to being thought of as a maverick; making unpopular decisions for the sake of making unpopular decisions simply means you’re a contrarian. Right?
