McCain Rejects AND Denounces Hagee; Says No Comparison To Wright...

After hearing yesterday's comments from Rev. John Hagee, Sen. McCain has now decided to reject the pastor's endorsement, despite saying that endorsements were given freely and not his reject.

Here's a statement from McCain:

Obviously, I find these remarks and others deeply offensive and indefensible, and I repudiate them. I did not know of them before Reverend Hagee's endorsement, and I feel I must reject his endorsement as well. I have said I do not believe Senator Obama shares Reverend Wright's extreme views. But let me also be clear, Reverend Hagee was not and is not my pastor or spiritual advisor, and I did not attend his church for twenty years. I have denounced statements he made immediately upon learning of them, as I do again today.
