Being a Maverick II

Since the 1600s, the Maverick family, has been a liberal progressive bunch who bucked the system to bring change. A recent article in the New York Times clearly defines the progressive ideas and actions of the Mavericks.

What is clear from this article and a recent one posted here is that John McCain is no maverick.. Terrellitta Maverick, 82, is incensed that their family name and history are evoked by John McCain:

He "is in no way a maverick, in uppercase or lowercase," Terrellitta Maverick said.

"It's just incredible — the nerve! — to suggest that he's not part of that Republican herd. Every time we hear it, all my children and I and all my family shrink a little and say, 'Oh, my God, he said it again.'"

"He’s a Republican," she said. "He's branded."

Now, these are the words of an original Maverick.
