When John McCain says American soldiers could be in Iraq for 100 years, the Liberal Mainstream Media screams "out of context!" -- even though when the remarks are put into "context," they become even crazier.
Interesting, ain't it? Whoever could have seen this coming?
BONUS. My very favorite quote so far about this crap is from ABC's Rick Klein, on why this Matters So Very Very Much:
Clark’s comments seem to miss a vital point about the McCain campaign: Yes, his military service is part of his stock campaign biography, but McCain is not running on that record nearly as much as he’s running on his service in Congress.
Here is McCain not running on his war record:
"When I was offered a chance to go home early from prison camp in Vietnam, I put my country first,” McCain said on a conference call Tuesday night with independent and Democratic voters in South Florida. “And I’ve been doing that ever since."
And whoops, there goes McCain, once more avoiding any mention of his war record as a qualification for high office!
All of which makes Rick Klein's assertion that:
Clark is right that “getting shot down” isn’t a qualification to be president, but McCain isn’t saying that it is.
A load of shit.
If Clark is right, then he's right.
