The McCain Camp's Favorite W[h]ine: "Obama Won’t Shut Down Campaign Smears"

April 8, 2008

DEMOCRATIC SENATOR Jay Rockefeller has no backbone:

“McCain was a fighter pilot, who dropped laser-guided missiles from 35,000 feet. He was long gone when they hit,” Rockefeller told the newspaper, which published the article on the interview Tuesday.

“What happened when they [the missiles] get to the ground? He doesn’t know. You have to care about the lives of people. McCain never gets into those issues,” he is quoted saying.

On Tuesday, Rockefeller issued a statement, saying, “I have deep respect for John McCain’s honorable and noble service to our country. I made an inaccurate and wrong analogy and I have extended my sincere apology to him.

“While we differ a great deal on policy issues, I profoundly respect and appreciate his dedication to our country, and I regret my very poor choice of words,” he said.

Look, do you think John McCain apologized to the people his missiles landed on? Fuck no. This is America, politicians. Don’t. Apologize. For. Anything. You sound like a bunch of assholes when you do that.

    Maybe if we rolled up the second phase of the Iraq Study Group’s report he could stick it in his jellyspine and stiffen that thing up some.

    If we ever get the second phase of the Iraq Study Groups’ report.
