Will McCain Condemn Reject or Denounce This?

-- by Dave Johnson

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.

I know this is probably going to be deemed as "nitpicky" but

"to the point of using pictures of candidates morphine into Osama bin laden in their candidates' ads."

The word should be MORPHING (morphine is a very powerful narcotic).
If you choose to correct, feel free to dump this comment.

I would point out that I don't believe Obama is ever held responsible on EVERY Black person's comments (I've never heard anyone hold Barack responsible for Condi or Alan Keyes or even Bill Cosby). I certainly know he wasn't held accountable for MoveOn.org. He couldn't be bothered to vote on the Betray-Us ad condemnation (Hillary, however, voted to support MoveOn.org, for all the good it did her when that organization's members decided to vote on an endorsement; of course, had she not voted, that would have earned the wrath of the whole "progressive" community).

mccain will not be held accountable for anything as long as russet, broder et al are able to write (if you call that writing)

the media should be all over the torture thing with mccain, but they are too focused on the hillary-obama garbage being spewed to touch their johnny boy
