I usually just post our TPMtv episodes once a day. But there was a lot of news today. And this one I’d like people to get a special look at because it shows what an elaborately choreographed joke the coverage of John McCain is likely to be. Barack Obama got seriously tripped up for apparently not sufficiently denouncing an ‘endorsement’ he didn’t solicit from someone he has no connection with. John McCain solicited the endorsement of a complete nut who’s got this long history of slurs against the Catholic Church and a lot else. McCain’s sticking with Hagee and he’s getting a complete pass.

We put together a little compilation of some of Hagee and McCain’s best moments. But look at the second one in the list. US policy explicitly supports a two-state solution in Israel-Palestine. Hagee says that because the US is supporting that policy God is going to punish America by sending Muslim terrorists to America to create a bloodbath in our streets.

God’s going to send jihadists to mount catastrophic terrorist attacks to punish us for supporting the creation of a Palestinian state in the West Bank. It’s certainly a new twist on the war on terror.

It’s pretty amazing what it takes to create a problem for John McCain … Take a look.
