St. John Part Deux

Digby reminds us of how Rovian politics really work. Remember all the crap about the nutbar who introduced McCain trashing Hussein Obama?

In this case, McCain not only gets these insults against both Democratic candidates aired over and over again, he makes himself look good for "repudiating" it. It's "out there" which is the best of all possible worlds.
Yep. We all fall for it and the media laps it up like a thirsty dog.
The media have been playing those insults of Obama and Clinton over and over again on a loop --- along with that straight talking flyboy angrily dismissing the comments. The media gave him high marks for his integrity, as usual. Today, they are calling it a brilliant "triangulization" strategy. Talk about a win-win-win for McCain.
It's enough to make you a cynic.
