John McCain’s top lead media consultant, Mark McKinnon, is leaving the McCain campaign team, keeping to a vow he made last year not to work against Barack Obama.
In February he told NPR, “I would simply be uncomfortable being in a campaign that would be inevitably attacking Barack Obama. I think it would be uncomfortable for me, and I think it would be bad for the McCain campaign.”
The comments to the CNN and WaPo posts are filled with uninformed (and unintentional) hilarity; perhaps that’s what you get with an Obama candidacy and all its new supporters. My favorite is this comment which looks like it came from the depths of DU:
“McKinnnon is a double agent, and wants the Dems to nominate Obama so McCain can win.”
The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy is far more widespread & clever than we give them credit for. If they’ve got McKinnon – we can trust nobody.
NOBODY IS ABOVE SUSPICION!
Sure, keep believing that…
