There was a lot of talk a week or two ago about Barack Obama acting too "presumptuous." It was the word most commonly used among the punditry to describe Obama's European and Middle-Eastern tour. Even John McCain blasted Obama for acting like he was already President.
So how to explain McCain's behavior regarding the current Republic of Georgia conflict? Rachel Maddow has guest hosted MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann for the last few days (and yes, I'm aware that this blog is in danger of becoming an unofficial Maddow fan site). Here, she deconstructs McCain's actions, points out the hypocrisy, and lays into McCain for his comments about Georgia being the first serious international crisis since the Cold War. Good stuff.
Incidentally, you have no idea how difficult it is to resist the temptation to post every Rachel Maddow clip I find. As an early fan, I'm just tickled she's doing so well. Good work Rachel!
