Looks like McCain steps up

And good for him and about damn time:
"And then later, again, someone dangled a great big piece of low-hanging fruit in front of McCain: "I'm scared to bring up my child in a world where Barack Obama is president."

McCain replies, 'Well, I don't want him to be president, either. I wouldn't be running if I did. But,' and he pauses for emphasis, 'you don't have to be scared to have him be President of the United States.' A round of boos."
Reminds me of when Palin started her run by crediting Hillary's work for women and that phrase was booed out of future versions of the speech. Let's hope that McCain sticks to this.

I want to give him credit. But the credit is for doing now what he should have done the first time that shit happened. He shouldn't have had to read critical columns or see his poll numbers flag to do the right thing. Better late than never, but don't expect a damn parade.

Wonder now if he will tell Palin to stick a sock in it?
