Will Russert or Matthews or Broder any of America’s other “opinion leaders” ask John McCain to condemn, reject and denounce this?
Townhall.com::Congressional Democrats: The Other Insurgents::By Michael Reagan,
The goals of the Democrats and both al Qaeda and al Sadr insurgents are the same: the defeat of the United States in the war in Iraq.
Senator Obama is held responsible for anything any black person anywhere says – even Harry Belefonte – and both Obama and Hillary are held responsible for anything posted at MoveOn, DailyKos, etc.
But John McCain gets a free pass, even on statements like this – the kind of statement which he has come pretty close to repeating himself. This is the son of a Republican President who said this, not some marginalized outlier. This is the kind of statement that is repeated frequently by other Republicans. This is the kind of statement that the Republican Party itself has used in previous elections – to the point of using pictures of candidates morphine into Osama bin laden in their candidates’ ads. It is time once and for all for McCain to either embrace or condemn this.
