That Was Brief! Fearmonger John McCain Back to Old Tricks- Conflating Osama with Obama

Which is it, McCain? Is Obama a decent family man as you said the other day? If so, then why are you not clearly REPUDIATING the nutbag Republican, Jeffrey Frederick,  who said..

He climbed atop a folding chair to give 30 campaign volunteers who were about to go canvassing door to door their talking points — for instance, the connection between Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden: "Both have friends that bombed the Pentagon," he said. "That is scary." It is also not exactly true — though that distorted reference to Obama's controversial association with William Ayers, a former 60s radical, was enough to get the volunteers stoked.

So much for any type of decency.

Update: The WaPost takes on Mr. Frederick

Mr. Frederick, who refuses to apologize for his remarks, deserves no such leeway -- this isn't his first far-fetched logical leap. A few months ago, Mr. Frederick charged Democrats with "coordinated and widespread voter fraud . . . throughout Virginia." Asked for proof of one of his more scurrilous claims, Mr. Frederick said, "I bet it exists somewhere."

Both the Obama and McCain campaigns denounced Mr. Frederick's remarks. Even Virginia Republicans have chastised Mr. Frederick. Del. David B. Albo (Fairfax) told us that Mr. Frederick's comments were "ridiculous." "We don't need to make up stuff about Barack Obama," he said. "We can talk about policies to win the election." Virginia has a proud tradition of responsible leadership, and the pragmatism of Republicans such as Rep. Tom Davis and Sen. John W. Warner stands in stark contrast to Mr. Frederick's fear-mongering. Is this really the leader Virginia Republicans want?
