Audio: McCain says someone was laughing during his Baghdad press conference

This makes three independent reports of distracting chuckling during the presser: Drudge’s original much-maligned story, which accused Michael Ware by name of “heckling;” AFP’s story from last Tuesday, which cited “giggling” by an unnamed reporter; and now J-Mac himself, who appeared yesterday on Sean Hannity’s radio show to do a little rebunking of Raw Story’s debunking. Hannity volunteers Ware’s name and McCain doesn’t correct him, but even in McCain’s case the knowledge is secondhand: apparently it was Lindsey Graham and the rest of the contingent who noticed the disturbance while McCain was answering someone’s question.

Just keeping you up to speed. Until someone puts this directly to Graham, we won’t know for sure.

I included a minute or so of McCain ripping on the Democrats at the beginning, just because it tickles me.

Bonus J-Mac media! Not at all relevant to Waregate but it made me laugh.

Exit question: Is Jonah right? Is it springtime for J-Mac?
