Meanwhile, in the land of the free…

June 24, 2008

From BBC News:

An aide to Republican presidential hopeful John McCain has said he regrets telling a reporter that a terror attack on the US would be “an advantage”.

Charlie Black made the comments to a journalist from Fortune magazine.

Mr McCain has distanced himself from Mr Black’s comments, saying he “strenuously disagreed” with him.

When asked whether a terror attack on US soil would help Mr McCain’s campaign, Mr Black told the magazine: “Certainly it would be a big advantage to him.”

In the article, Mr Black also said that the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was an “unfortunate event” that had “helped” Mr McCain’s presidential bid.

This doesn’t mean Obama has this race won, though.  A New York Times opinion piece quotes from a blog which claims that Obama’s fashion choices will alienate potential voters.  The Times refers to the bloggers as “Hilary (sic) Clinton supporters”.  I’m really hoping they are not, though.  I’m really hoping they are clumsy GOP interns who are having a bit of anti-DNC fun.  That would make me feel better about this:

We are supporters of Hillary Clinton forced into winter quarters by the DNC and MSM. We’ve been battered and abused by the Obama campaign for over a year, and have yet to hear one good solid reason why he should be president. All of us bitter, Appalachian, tradition-clinging, blue collar, centrists no longer have a place in “The Party”. Hey, DNC, good luck with that, ’cause radical rebranding sure worked out for New Coke.
