So now McCain is lying is ass off.Â That should qualify him as the GOP candidate.
NBC’s Tom Aspell has a kick-butt report tonight on John McCain’s trip to Baghdad.
McCain declared earlier this week on CNN that the media was distorting the conditions on the ground in Iraq and that in fact you could stroll through many Baghdad neighborhoods, a rose-colored account that drew a quick rebuke from CNN’s Michael Ware.
Aspell reports that McCain’s “stroll” today through a Baghdad market was guarded by 100 American soldiers, three Blackhawk helicopters, and two Apache gunships.
In his Dukakis-in-a-tank moment, McCain himself wore a bulletproof vest on his stroll.
