That Charleston columnist pointed out that Richard Cohen, one of his peers from a paper in the nation’s capitol, had faulted the presumptive Republican nominee for engaging in the “the sort of campaigning” he had once “vowed to eschew.”
And what had John McCain done to warrant this this tongue-lashing?
He had said, “Barack Obama’s foreign policy plans have even won him praise from Hamas leaders.â€ Something which has indeed happened.
So, I guess for a liberal columnist it’s mud-slinging whena Republican brings up unpleasant facts about his likely Democratic opponent? Cohen had just become yet another MSM pundit repeating the Democratic mantra that John McCain is no longer the maverick they once admired, but has become a clone of George W. Bush.
It’s all because he has a chance at winning the White House for the GOP. It seems columnists as well as reporters will eschew honest campaign coverage in order to prevent that from happening.
