Arizona Republic slams McCain over flip-flopping on proposed 18% sales tax increase

The Republic's editorial board had some choice words for McCain's flip-flopping the last few days on the proposed 18% sales tax increase. Some excerpts:

When McCain told a reporter he had no position on the temporary sales tax, Hayworth pounced, accusing McCain of being out of touch and not knowing how he'll vote on the largest tax hike in state history. In an instant, McCain found a position, against the tax, and found a friend, Sen. Jon Kyl, to give him cover.

With both McCain and Kyl signing a joint statement in opposition, it looked more like the two had coordinated their positions and less like McCain had come to a position after being cornered by Hayworth.
