Responding to the idea that the GOP candidate unfairly listened in to the Faith Forum questions in advance, a McCain spokesperson said that "the insinuation that John McCain, a former prisoner of war, cheated is outrageous."
Bringing aboard cutthroat veterans from the Bush '04 team injected new life into McCain's campaign, but it also produced disgust among many observers -- and the potential for backlash among independent voters.
You're a damn war hero, McCain. It's time to cowboy up and nail some people's asses to the wall. Let the purge begin, brother, otherwise the only thing you're going to president of is the steering committee at the Elks Lodge.
McCain has joked that the media is "his base" of support. It was a funny line, but there is a truth at its core: the media has been hard on Obama but unbelievably light on McCain. And this has to stop. Now.
