Radio Talker Bill Cunningham introduced John McCain today at a campaign rally, repeatedly making reference to “Barak Hussein Obama”. McCain stood up and rebuked Cunningham, stating he had the utmost respect for his Democratic rivals.
I have to give props to McCain for playing it exactly right. He neutered the presumed Obama/Media attack on him for not addressing the “Hussein” references, and put himself above nitpicking. The more he avoids situations like this, the more he can focus on attacking Obama where he’s the weakest– the issues.
