Day Three of McKKKain Respecting Obama

Gesh ... What does he do if he was really going heartlessly, deep-in-the-gutter, mean-spirited, nasty?

Karen Timulty, of Time Magazine, reporting;

In Battleground Virginia, a Tale of Two Ground Games

With so much at stake, and time running short, Frederick did not feel he had the luxury of subtlety. He climbed atop a folding chair to give 30 campaign volunteers who were about to go canvassing door to door their talking points — for instance, the connection between Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden: "Both have friends that bombed the Pentagon," he said. "That is scary." It is also not exactly true — though that distorted reference to Obama's controversial association with William Ayers, a former 60s radical, was enough to get the volunteers stoked. "And he won't salute the flag," one woman added, repeating another myth about Obama. She was quickly topped by a man who called out, "We don't even know where Senator Obama was really born." Actually, we do; it's Hawaii.
The "Frederick" she references is the head of the GOP in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Virginia state GOP chairman Jeffrey M Frederick.

Nice pep talk, heh?

But wait, there's more!

Given the opportunity to show how he respects Obama, as he indicated the other day, however, Stumblin' Bumblin' John McKKKain played dumb, when appearing on a local television program there, in Virginia;

McCain Declines To Condemn Virginia Republican's Comparison Of Obama And Osama

QUESTION: The chair of the Republican Party in Virginia has said, quote, in Time magazine, "both Barack Obama and Osama Bin Laden have friends that have bombed the Pentagon. That is scary." Is that appropriate for a state party chair to be saying?

MCCAIN: "I have to look at the context of his remarks. I have always repudiated any comments that have been made that were inappropriate about Senator Obama. The fact is that William Ayers was a terrorist and bomber and unrepentant. I don't care about that. But Senator Obama ought be the candid and truthful about his relationship with Mr. Ayers in whose living room Senator Obama launched his campaign and Senator Obama said he was just a guy in the neighborhood."
Gee, he really needs to "look at the context" to make an evaluation if that was a blatantly ugly smear?

Just some, good ol McKKKain-type straight talk, my friends...

That's some respect you can believe in, I guess.
