Oh my. The One was quite insistent last month about “civilians” not being dragged into the campaign, wasn’t he? Well, we’ve been through this tapdance before with McCain: State party attacks candidate’s wife, party nominee refuses comment lest he be forced to play “referee” for everyone on his side, and all’s well. Like I’ve said before, the market is perfectly capable of dealing with this tactic. If the Dems want to chance a backlash by needling Maverick’s “sugar mommy” a tiny bit, so be it. No need for histrionic faux outrage of the sort the left specializes in, although of course Team McCain’s obliged. And right on cue, here it is.
