John McCain Skinning & Grinning before the NAACP

Poor John! He just doesn’t get it.

I come not to bury Caesar, but to praise him

Senator John McCain speaking about his political opponent Senator Barack Obama:

*** Let me begin with a few words about my opponent. Don’t tell him I said this, but he is an impressive fellow in many ways. He has inspired a great many Americans, some of whom had wrongly believed that a political campaign could hold no purpose or meaning for them. His success should make Americans, all Americans, proud... Senator Obama talks about making history, and he’s made quite a bit of it already. And the way was prepared by this venerable organization and others like it. A few years before the NAACP was founded, President Theodore Roosevelt’s invitation of Booker T. Washington to dine at the White House was taken as an outrage and an insult in many quarters. America today is a world away from the cruel and prideful bigotry of that time. There is no better evidence of this than the nomination of an African-American to be the presidential nominee of his party. Whatever the outcome in November, Senator Obama has achieved a great thing — for himself and for his country — and I thank him for it.

You know those town hall meeting that McCain likes so much?
They're rigged.
A Huff Post reporter tailed McCain thru New Mexico and attended one of the town halls there and noticed that several of the questions and answered were scripted.

No wonder Obama doesn't want to attend- they're a rigged game.

Today we find out that the NY Times nixed McCain's Op-Ed because it was too sloppy and full of inaccuracies. The bloggers got a hold of it, and boy is it awful. How the hell did this get past the campaign?
