Tuesday McCaineurysm

These things are getting debilitating. And disgusting:
The assassination of Benazir Bhutto in December was an "unfortunate event," says (McCain chief strategist, Charlie) Black. "But his knowledge and ability to talk about it reemphasized that this is the guy who's ready to be Commander-in-Chief. And it helped us." As would, Black concedes with startling candor after we raise the issue, another terrorist attack on U.S. soil. "Certainly it would be a big advantage to him," says Black.
Unfortunately, that's the nature of the media's ring-kissing relationship with St. McCain: though running on the continuation of the policies that ALLOWED us to get hit again, the aforementioned attack would be presented as a showcase for his "experience."

And that plays right into his toady's confession of the ghoulish political calculus surrounding dead Americans. So confident are they, that there will be no blowback from such an admission, that the alleged "chief strategist" for the campaign doesn't even bother with a perfunctory statement decrying considerations of politics when discussing this kind of tragedy.
