McCotter is popular among a narrow band of conservatives for his brand of "wry" Republican and Tea Party humor, which is really just the same old nonsense with an twist of sarcastic condescension.
You'll get a good example of his style in this clip from a floor speech in 2008, in which he pontificates about "Speaking Democratic." He gave a similar presentation of slides in 2007 when arguing against reauthorizing the State Children's Health Insurance Program, calling it socialist HillaryCare or something... it's unimportant.
He has not always taken a pure conservative line, however. He has written that there is room for labor and management to come together in the interest of both. And on the campaign trail, he will have to defend a vote to rescue General Motors and Chrysler that may not be as popular outside Michigan as in it.
