McCain Aide Wishes on a Star

You always suspected that they thought it. But who would be so stupid as to say it. On McCain’s “political maestro” Mr. Charlie Black and how he thinks thousands of Americans being incinerated would be a “big advantage” to the Republican Party.

“the longtime political pro got a bit too honest. Asked about the political impact of another terrorist attack on U.S. soil, Black replied: ‘Certainly it would be a big advantage to him’.”

You worry that people who think like Black would not be above a little wagging the dog, say, a provocation against Iran in October.

I wonder if Cindy McCain still feels safe, on knowing how her husband’s associates really think.

We don’t need any more of this politics of fear that Karl Rove, Dick Cheney and Bush gave to us. That McCain has such people around him is yet another indication that he is too close to Bush and Bushism to be allowed anywhere near the White House.
