Here’s the link to a story on John McCain bashing Barack Obama in a particularly vicious way. “I’m embarrassed to admit that after all these years in politics, I failed to interpret your previous assurances as typical rhetorical gloss routinely used in politics to make self-interested partisan posturing appear more noble,” said McCain. “I understand how important the opportunity to lead your party’s efforts to exploit this issue must seem to a freshman senator, and I hold no hard feelings over your earlier disingenuousness.”
What about McCain making sure his Jack Abramoff hearings didn’t touch any Republican politicians (he did give blanket assurances to them, remember) or key GOP powerbrokers?
Wantin’ to be president can go to a guy’s head.
