I don’t believe — I don’t want to believe — there’s any merit to the alleged McCain scandal. Granted, he hasn’t handled the leak well, and I never like it when a campaign pressures a newspaper to hold a story.
But for now I’m sticking with the Arizona maverick. I think he’s the most decent, honorable candidate running and I need hard evidence before reconsidering.
This much I do know: Hillbot has developed a “working relationship” with Drudge, who broke the McCain story today. Polls show McCain running ahead of Hillary in a general election.
Meanwhile, McCain has moved into a tie with The Anchorman in New Hampshire. Romney is as slick as the Clintons and is proving to be just as untrustworthy. The McCain story couldn’t have come at a better time for Romney — make of that what you will. (Mark Halperin is likewise suspicious.)
Don’t get me wrong: If these allegations turn out to be true, I won’t ignore reality. I’m not going to be like one of those blindly loyal Bill Clinton supporters.
I trust it won’t come to that. What little faith I have in politics — and politicians — is at stake.
