Ralph Reed Blaming John McCain For His Loss In George Lt. Gov Race…
The New Republic :
So who does Ralph Reed blame for his thumping in yesterday's Georgia GOP lieutenant governor primary? Not himself. Not even Jack Abramoff. Nope, he blames John McCain. Per National Review's Rich Lowry, who has this post on the Corner offering "the view of what happened from the Reed camp":
Reed's connection to the Abramoff stuff had broken back in the summer of 2004, so it couldn't have been predicted that it would be such a huge deal even now. But it was. The Reed camp blames John McCain for playing payback for his 2000 primary defeat with a campaign of leaks, and the press, of course, was happy to pile on.
