The Campaign for America’s Future proudly emailed this attack video against John McCain to me the other day, and frankly it’s disappointing stuff:
There’s just no evidence that McCain did anything wrong here. He was on the side of the angels in helping to investigate some dirty dealings in the contracting process for this tanker back in 2004, and the idea that Boeing should have a permanent monopoly on Air Force contracts because to work with rival firms would be “shipping jobs to France” is absurd. If people don’t want to go after McCain for something real, they should go after his shabby treatment of his first wife or make fun of him for being so damn old or something. Or go after him for something real! But this ignorant and silly.
