More complaining from John McCain about that DNC ad on his 100 years remarks. As I’ve argued here, the DNC ad is rigorously accurate. It quotes McCain saying just what he said.

Says McCain: “It’s a direct falsification, and I’m sorry that political campaigns have to deteriorate in this fashion. Because there’s legitimate differences between myself and Senator Obama and Senator Clinton on what we should do in Iraq.”

Clearly, we need to keep things on the high road like calling your opponent the candidate of Hamas.

This seems to be the gloss that McCain believes the DNC should add to provide the proper context for his remarks: “”After we win the war in Iraq, and we are succeeding — and it’s long and hard and tough, with enormous sacrifices — then I’m talking about a security arrangement that may or may not be the same kind of thing we had with Korea after the Korean war was over.”
