Saddleback Spin

By Creature

The media's spinning a win tonight for their favorite candidate, John McCain, at tonight's so-called faith forum. I watched both segments and if McCain's belligerent, hyper, insincere, anecdotal, pander-full performance counts as a win it's going to be long road to November. Barack Obama came to have an honest conversation. John McCain came to give his stump speech. It was a pitiful performance by the man who wants to be warmonger-in-chief, but when the media is grading you on a curve it's called masterful.

Shoot me now.

  • I couldn't watch more than a clip of McCain and didn't get through that to the end.

    I don't think it's going to have a big impact in any event. People will have forgotten it by Nov. and besides, that audience wasn't going to vote for Obama no matter what.

    To the extent that anyone watched it, I have a feeling McCain's declaration of being the anti-choice candidate will hurt him more than help overall.

  • Whatever . . . the handwriting is beginning to appear on the wall -- McCain WILL win. You guys will be so upset that you'll blame it on race, because you cannot accept the fact that America does NOT knowingly elect liberals.

  • I agree, Libby. Last night will not sway voters, but when the media is so willing to lap up McCain's bull it's going to be very hard slog getting a real message out through their noise.

  • I guess "straight talk" now means plagiarism. McCain's cross in the dirt story was taken straight from Solzhenitsyn's biography:

    Interestingly enough, McCain himself wrote an article on Solzhenitsyn. I guess he's taking his story a little too much to heart.

    First wikipedia, now this? disgusting.
