Barack Obama has been taking crazy amounts of heat over his pastor's comments about America. I find it tedious and stupid, but the tedious and stupid seem to find it endlessly important (particularly Sean Hannity). Getting less attention is John McCain's affiliation with crazy holy-roller John Hagee.
Hagee is most well known for calling the Catholic Church "the great whore." Nice. But that ain't all. No, he also thinks that Hurrican Katrina was God's retribution for a scheduled gay pride parade that hadn't happened yet. And in Hagee's excitedly fevered imagination, this parade was going to be soooo gay, that the likes of it had never been seen. Umm, in New Orleans. . . ? Whatever, dude.
Anyway, Hagee not only said this, but when given a chance to back-peddle, he strongly reiterated them instead. Finally, John McCain is starting to get questioned about his eagerness seeking, obtaining, and keeping Hagee's endorsement. It's only fair, right? McCain's response was, shall we say, something less than extemporaneous.
McCain on Hagee’s Katrina comments: ‘It’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, it’s nonsense.’
"It’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, it’s nonsense. I dont have anything additional to say. It’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, I don’t have anything more to say…it’s nonsense. I reject it categorically."
I think Cindy needs to change his batteries or something. . .
