Sen. McCain was on Imus this morning, and was asked about McCain taking his "straight talk"(*cough bullshit *cough) to Jerry Falwell's Liberty University. Remember, 6 years ago McCain said this:|
"Neither party should be defined by pandering to the outer reaches of American politics and the agents of intolerance, whether they be Louis Farrakhan or Al Sharpton on the left, or Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell on the right."Of course, McCain just agreed that yes, he is going to Liberty U., and Imus said "good for you, cover all your bases", or something like that. No follow up on what McCain said before about Falwell, or no Imus led trash talk on Falwell. Imus missed a great opportunity to see what Mr. Straight Talk really had to say, but wussed out, or didn't want to be too tough on his friend. This is the type of question that put Imus on the map, but now we see he's no different than fellow NBCer Russert. Like Sully says, I guess McCain has changed his mind.
