McCain: Umm, okay, maybe Wright's fair game after all (w/ video)

Well, never mind what the conservatives say, but if Obamessiah says Wright’s fair game, then have at him:

Sen. John McCain continues to ride a very thin line on the Jeremiah Wright controversy, reiterating today that while he will not make an issue of Barack Obama’s pastor, he will not be surprised if others do.

“I believe that Senator Obama does not share those views. But Senator Obama himself says it’s a legitimate political issue so I would imagine that many other people would share that view and it will be in the arena,” McCain said during a Miami-area media availability, alluding to comments Obama made during his Fox News Sunday interview today. The Illinois Democrat told FNS that “the fact that he is my former pastor I think makes it a legitimate political issue.”

McCain steps up and throws some pretty hard punches there, about Crackerquiddick, the gas tax holiday, terrorism, and capital gains. As for the Reverend, it looks like McCain’s actually bothered to listen to what Wright had to say–about Marines resembling the legionnaires who crucified Christ, and about there being no difference in the U.S. flag and Al Qaeda’s.

He still doesn’t think that NC-GOP ad should run, but says he’s not going to play the “referee” anymore.

McCain could have saved the party a lot of frustration had he just said this a couple days ago, and he wouldn’t have looked indecisive. He may hurt Obama with this, but he hasn’t done himself any favors.
