Mirror Universe McCain, sort of

My feeling is that the typical conservative Republican does not feel that John McCain is conservative enough, what with conservative blemishes like McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform and the proposed McCain-Kennedy immigration act.

But consider: what if McCain held all his exact same positions/views, but were a Democrat? A mirror universe version, if you will, complete with evil-mirror-universe mustache.
To Republicans, I think he would seem like a much better crossing-the-party-line candidate. To the typical anti-abortion, pro-military-presence-in-Iraq, lower-taxes Republican, the mirror universe's Democrat McCain would seem quite reasonable, even with the Republican failings of campaign finance, illegal immigrant amnesty, and the like.

In a Republican light, McCain is mediocre. But in a Democrat light seen from Republican eyes, McCain wouldn't seem as bad. A Democrat McCain might be somewhat similar to Zell Miller. I will most probably still not vote though. And more here.
