The Republican Party's 5th Column Strikes Again

McCain Says Kerry Not Weak on Defense
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Thursday he did not believe Democratic candidate John Kerry (news - web sites), a friend and Senate colleague, was weak on defense or would compromise national security if elected president.

"This kind of rhetoric, I think, is not helpful in educating and helping the American people make a choice," McCain said on "The Early Show" on CBS. "You know, it's the most bitter and partisan campaign that I've ever observed. I think it's because both parties are going to their bases rather than going to the middle. I regret it."

That was rather nice of Mr. McCain, perhaps he's more useful as a mole in the Republican party than as a Democratic VP candidate. Senator's McCain's praise is far more useful for the Democrats' than Kerry's own attempts to defend himself on national security issues, which as of late have not been that impressive.
