McCain Hires Key Falwell Staffer For Presidential Campaign

McCain Hires Key Falwell Staffer For Presidential Campaign

In 2000, John McCain called Jerry Falwell an agent of intolerance. Now, he has hired the debate coach from Falwells Liberty University, Brett ODonnell, to advise him on his communications strategy. ODonnell has been executing Falwells strategy to train scores of debaters to confront the culture on moral default.

Falwell said the hiring should not be considered an endorsement:

The Rev. Jerry Falwell, chancellor of the Lynchburg university, said he has not endorsed a candidate, and ODonnells appointment should not be interpreted as a signal that he is backing McCainSenator McCain is getting a real winner, and Im sure Brett will be a great help to him, Falwell said. Hes getting Brett at the peak of his production.

McCain also delivered the commencement address at Liberty University this summer.

McCain clearly knows jack shit about college debate and I suspect Falwell is a clueless deep pocket for that team. This guy gonna train McCain to talk fast? I guess now McCain will have a helluva frontline prepared when Rudy tries to run a Foucault kritik against him in the primary debates. :rofl:

I'll have to ask my college debate friends about the Liberty kids and what the deal is there cuz I see alot of these articles where Falwell seems to think he has the future of the judicial branch of government cornered by having a winning debate team. It's laughable. I suspect (and hope) that the college debate community is changing those kids alot more than they are changing it and thank God for that.

3. McCain has declared himself a Goldwater Republican...
...and even inherited his senate seat from him. Yet, Goldwater publicly declared that he wanted to kick Falwell in the balls. McCain, you are NO Barry Goldwater. :thumbsdown:
