"... Republican U.S. presidential candidate John McCain accused North Carolina's Republican Party of being "out of touch with reality" over its refusal to pull an advertisement criticizing Democrat Barack Obama.
In an NBC interview aired on Friday, the Arizona senator said he has done all he can to persuade the state party to cancel the television ad that criticizes Obama as "too extreme" because of controversial remarks made by his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
"They're not listening to me because they're out of touch with reality and the Republican Party. We are the party of Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan and this kind of campaigning is unacceptable," McCain told NBC's "Today" Show.
"I've done everything that I can to repudiate and to see that this kind of campaigning does not continue," he added..." (source)
Two things...when i start to get annoyed over this I can't help but think how much the MSM is loving the fact that they finally get to post a 'controversy' about McCain and get Hillary and the Golden Boy out of the limelight for a second.
But Second, I'm unsure what McCain was implying when he invoked the three presidents that he did. What is the common bind that would stop any of the three from informing the American public of a true and nefarious association?
Then I read at Newsmax that McCain had some things of his own to say about the Obama/Wright mentorship:
"McCain said he was deeply disturbed by new comments Wright has made. ...and suggested Sen. Barack Obama's relationship with the controversial minister was "beyond belief."
"I saw yesterday some additional comments that have been revealed by Pastor Wright, one of them comparing the United States Marine Corps with Roman Legionnaires who were responsible for the death of our savior. I mean being involved in that, it's beyond belief. And then of course saying that al-Qaida and the American flag were the same flags," McCain told reporters." (Read the article)
