• Mark Salter Wonders Why Barack Obama Supporters Keep Ruining John McCain's Rallies

    Mark Salter, a longtime McCain staffer and co-author of the Maverick's books, took a break from inventing synonyms for "war hero" to chat with the Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg the other day.

    As someone who knows John McCain better than most, surely Salter can explain why the candidate who used to be all straight talk and principles has become Mr. Weasel McHatingpants…

    JG: What do you say to people who say, "The McCain I like I haven't seen in two or three months, and I hope he comes back to us."

    MS: That's the McCain who's running in this race. You just don't report what you see. It's the whole thing about our rallies. Ninety-nine percent of our rallies, if there's a disruption, if there's something ugly shouted, they're Obama supporters.

    Hold on. I think Mark Salter just blew my mind.

    So the people who said "Obama is a terrorist, he's a Muslim himself"…

    …and the people with the Obama bin Lyin' signs…

    …and the people who screamed "Socialist!" and booed when McCain mentioned Obama…

    …and, of course, the patriotic Americans who booed John McCain himself for cutting off a complaint about Obama's untrustworthy Arab-ness…

    …well, heck! They aren't McCain supporters at all! They're in the tank for Obama, their favorite Muslim Socialist terrorist Arab.

    Some people have such strange ways of showing their affection.
