The what-if-Obama-had-done-it game

By Creature

Steve Benen's right, as with almost everything McCain, if Barack Obama had confused the "surge/awakening" time-line and then continued to dig himself into a hole by, well, conveniently redefining the whole damn thing, the Right, along with their media lapdogs, would be calling it a campaign ending gaffe.

I know it's fun to play the what-if-Obama-had-done-it game, but with the outcome always the same -- McCain's gaffe excused, while Obama's is magnified -- it's getting kind of tiresome. McCain may want to whine media bias, but they've got his back and they will rehabilitate him at every turn.
