What a week for the Gaffe Twins.
First, Joe Biden bone-headedly urges a disabled lawmaker
veteran (correction: not a veteran) in a wheelchair to “Stand up” during a campaign rally.
Next, Barack Obama mocks John McCain for not using a computer to send e-mail — despite mainstream media articles dating back to 2000 that report he can’t type because of the war injuries inflicted by his Vietnamese torturers.
Who will their next victims be?
Keep these bunglers away from Walter Reed.
Reader Matthew Fritch e-mails:
I just thought I would share this letter to the editor I sent to the Seattle Times and the Olympian in regards to Obama’s latest ad:
As a Disabled Veteran and as an American I was utterly disgusted by the latest campaign ad by Sen. Obama. The ad in which I speak makes the following claim:
The ad shows one of two things; either Sen. Obama has absolutely no scruples about attacking Sen. McCain’s disability he suffers from due to the torture he received as a POW or he and his campaign lack the basic skills to do research prior to releasing this tasteless ad. I did a bit of checking and found the following quote in a Boston Globe article by Mary Leonard dated 3/4/2000 which states,
“McCain’s severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes.”
Perhaps instead of mocking Sen. McCain’s injuries, the Sen. Obama should be reaching out to the disabled community. I see this as just one more reason that Sen. Obama has been slipping in the polls in our great state as well as nationally.
