McCain To Clinton Backer Who Endorsed Him: "Perhaps Your Reward Will Be In Heaven"

Posted: Updated:

John McCain has criticized Barack Obama supposed presumptuousness frequently. Last week, a McCain ad suggested Obama is styling himself the new Messiah. But who's really playing the God card? First McCain's campaign came out with this poster. Now he's telling Clinton voters that support him over Obama that they'll be thanked in the afterlife:

Also Thursday, McCain called Debra Bartoshevich, the Racine County resident who lost her delegate seat at the Democratic National Convention for endorsing McCain instead of Obama, a "person of great courage" for endorsing him.

"Perhaps your reward will be in heaven - not here on Earth," McCain told Bartoshevich as he addressed the Civic Centre crowd.

No word yet from God on what the prize will be.
