Another one of John McCain’s bad choices in 2008 comes back to haunt him… (ht to Ben Smith) And Joe did something else that, besides turning the Palin traveling circus against him, is sure to make him the bete noire of the tea party faithful:
Wurzelbacher also told the room to lay off the extreme personal attacks on President Obama. He said people who question whether Obama was born in the United States or compare him to Hitler “belittle and set back” the conservative movement. “The birthers, the truthers — if people are trying to bunch them [with tea partiers], that would kill us. That just pushes away Democrats and independents who might come out for our cause otherwise.” He said he actually likes Obama, in some ways. “I think his ideology is un-American, but he’s one of the more honest politicians. At least he told us what he wanted to do.”
Uh … what??? An honest un-American??? (headache coming… need aspiring…) Remember the good times?
