Wright Around the Corner
As HuffPo is reporting, McCain campaign manager Rick Davis — he of Fannie and Freddie lobbying infamy — told Hugh Hewitt yesterday, in what was surely a meeting of minds for the ages, that “he is reconsidering using Barack Obama’s relationship with Reverend Jeremiah Wright as a campaign issue during the election’s closing weeks.”
It is apparently McCain himself, taking the high road (or so goes the spin), who has rejected attacking Obama over Wright, given both the religious and racial implications, but you just knew this was coming. In desperation, and with just two weeks left, what’s to stop it?
It’s what McCain’s people want, it’s what Palin wants, it’s what hardcore McCain boosters like Bill Kristol want, and it’s probably, deep down, what McCain himself wants.
And it’s likely coming soon to the McCain smear campaign near you.
