Andy McCarthy tells his fellow Cornerites that they’re all insane, then levels his gimlet-eyed, prosecutorial gaze at McCain, and shouts,J’accuse!
We have a disaster here — which is what you should expect when you delegate a non-conservative to make the conservative (nay, the American) case. [...]Now, as the night went along, did you get the impression that Obama comes from the radical Left? Did you sense that he funded Leftist causes to the tune of tens of millions of dollars? Would you have guessed that he’s pals with a guy who brags about bombing the Pentagon? Would you have guessed that he helped underwrite raging anti-Semites? Would you come away thinking, “Gee, he’s proposing to transfer nearly a trillion dollars of wealth to third-world dictators through the UN”? [...]Great. Memo to McCain Campaign: Someone is either a terrorist sympathizer or he isn’t; someone is either disqualified as a terrorist sympathizer or he’s qualified for public office. You helped portray Obama as a clealy qualified presidential candidate who would fight terrorists.If that’s what the public thinks, good luck trying to win this thing.With due respect, I think tonight was a disaster for our side. I’m dumbfounded that no one else seems to think so. Obama did everything he needed to do, McCain did nothing he needed to do. What am I missing?
I think it’s your soul, Andy. You might want to check Lost and Found in the morning.Posted by scott on October 7th, 2008
