The Ace They'd Been Holding

Never known for balanced political reporting, Rolling Stone magazine, obviously working in close collaboration with the Obama campaign, has just released a cover story on John McCain. It's a scathing (and fact-filled) piece, exposing the "maverick" story for what it is- carefully crafted fiction. We've all suspected his bio to be a bunch of BS, but no one was allowed to question the bogus narrative lest they face charges of being "unpatriotic" as they "dared to besmirch the suffering and heroism of Senator McCain."

Other patriotic people have been saying it for a long time, but their fringe status prevented the story from getting any mainstream play.

I would bet that the publication was holding this story, not willing to be charged with releasing an attack piece and playing favorites, but now that the Hounds of the Right have been loosed to repeat the Ayers story every ten minutes, Obama's people likely said, "Go."

Live by the mud, die by the mud.

  • Ha,some coincidence. I just finished reading it...the whole article is staggering in the sense that if all this is in public records, why hasn't this been covered by media?

    But still, it's better it came out in October rather than on Nov.05.

  • I doubt RS needs or wants a "Go" from anyone to publish a story. Nor do I believe the Obama campaign would want that kind of relationship.

    Now, I don't think there is any doubt the McCain campaign's decision to go all negative, all the time played a huge role in Obama dropping the Keating Five bomb.

  • I'm waiting for Obama to drop the McCain ‘C’ word and sick wife in hospital/new gf bomb when the discussion gets around to family values.
