Pulling A Giuliani
"This is a guy who lived in one house for five and a half years -- in prison," - Brian Rogers, McCain spokesman, responding to Obama mocking McCain for not knowing how many houses he owns. This was McCain's rhetorical gambit when accused of carpet-bagging earlier in his career. Hilzoy is getting tired of McCain playing the POW card without reason. Ben Smith's take:
It does seem like they're flirting with Giuliani/9/11 territory here, in which at subject that seems utterly immune to humor, used as a first resort, suddenly becomes a running joke among your political enemies and your late night comic friends.
He does seem to play the POW card every hour or so. And who is this Brian Rogers? Apart from sounding like an asshole in every single quote of his I see?
