Obama vs. the other guy, 2008

George Will Blasts John McCain

Toss another one into “The Tank”, as George Will goes medieval on John McCain:

Channeling his inner Queen of Hearts, John McCain furiously, and apparently without even looking around at facts, said Chris Cox, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, should be decapitated. This childish reflex provoked the Wall Street Journal to editorialize that “McCain untethered” — disconnected from knowledge and principle — had made a “false and deeply unfair” attack on Cox that was “unpresidential” and demonstrated that McCain “doesn’t understand what’s happening on Wall Street any better than Barack Obama does.”

To read the Journal’s details about the depths of McCain’s shallowness on the subject of Cox’s chairmanship, see “McCain’s Scapegoat” (Sept. 19, Page A22). Then consider McCain’s characteristic accusation that Cox “has betrayed the public’s trust.”

A prominent conservative like Will using terms such as “childish” and “shallowness” to describe John McCain should be a wake-up call to his campaign. But I suspect their campaign is too busy conducting their media jihad to notice. Or care.

  1. There comes a time when even staunch republicans who have the potential to think and act for something bigger than their ego, have to acknowledge that the McCain/Palin ticket would be the absolute worst choice for America.

    Even if you don’t vote democrat, vote ANYTHING OTHER than McCain, if only for your own sake.
