I’m sure this latest America-hating outburst by the bigoted preacher and McCain supporter John Hagee will lead to endless 24/7 analysis in the corporate media, especially Faux News, be the subject of an entire presidential debate, and raise all kinds of "electability" issues with regards to St. McCain, right?
PRAGER: Right, but in the case, did NPR get, is this quote correct though that in the case of New Orleans you do feel it was sin?
HAGEE: In the case of New Orleans, their plan to have that homosexual rally was sin. But it never happened. The rally never happened.
PRAGER: No, I understand.
HAGEE: It was scheduled that Monday.
PRAGER: No, I’m only trying to understand that in the case of New Orleans, you do feel that God’s hand was in it because of a sinful city?
HAGEE: That it was a city that was planning a sinful conduct, yes.
Shorter John Hagee: God damned the US because of teh gay.
What’s funny about the timing of this is that St. McCain was in New Orleans today, and got very bitchy about his boy Hagee spoiling his photo-op:
“It’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, it’s nonsense. I don’t have anything additional to say. It’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, it’s nonsense, I don’t have anything more to say….it’s nonsense. I reject it categorically.”
Uh, that’s not quite good enough St. McCain. Remember what you said about Obama?
I can tell you there are dramatic differences in our views. He’s been endorsed by MoveOn.org, same organization that ran the Petraeus ad. It indicated where he is.
So unless St. McCain completely renounces and rejects Hagee’s endorsement, which he actively pursued and is still "glad to have" — we’ll have to assume by McCain’s own standard that Hagee’s endorsement tells us a lot about "where he is."
