Earlier this week, Time magazine's Karen Tumulty reported on how Jeffrey Frederick, the chairman of the Virginia Republican party, gave GOP volunteers talking points on "the connection between Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden." "Both have friends that bombed the Pentagon," Frederick told 30 volunteers. "That is scary."
Frederick, for his part, is standing by his words. "It is just the hard facts," he told the Washington Post. Despite Frederick's outrageous comments, McCain is set to appear with him in Virginia on Saturday.
