When Senator McCain was running in the primary against George W., Karl Rove ran a dirty whisper campaign and W. won the primary. It was your typical get elected at all cost move and sadly it worked.
“Our opponent though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.”
That’s some Maverick behavior alright. The statement is nonsense and the McCain campaign knows it.
Next up Palin will be saying things about his religion (he’s Christian), and his upbringing (he did not attend a madrasah), and his patriotism (his wife does not hate America).
I like how this is orchestrated to have Governor Palin spout this nonsense. You don’t want to have McCain dirty his dress whites after all.
Senator McCain knows this is his last shot for the brass ring. So scruples be damned, his campaign will do and say whatever it takes to get anyone to vote for him.
