McCain's Black Baby Re-Emerges
http://www.crooksandliars.com/2008/03/08/the-oreilly-fa... /

Karl Rove:
I dont think people know a lot about him. They dont know about his views and values that informed him as a young man. They dont know about what drew him to service in the United States Navy. They dont know about all of the compelling story about the POW experience that he had. They dont know what motivated him, but what people and places in Sedona touch his life. Let me give you just one example: I think most of your viewers be shocked to hear the story about Cindy McCain in Bangladesh, visiting an orphanage, and she has a small dying child thrust into her hands and the orphanagethe people in the orphanage say we cant, we cant care for her, shes dying, we dont know what to do. And Cindy McCains impulse was to hold thathug that child to her chest, get on an airplane and bring her home. When she got off the plane, there was John McCain, and he said, What do you got? and she said Ive got a child whos dying, we need to get her helpwe need to get her care. And John said, Well, who is she going to be staying with? and Cindy McCain said, I was hoping that she could stay with us. And today, that young childwho was near deathis their teenage daughter. I dont think most people understand the compassion and love that would come from a moment like that. Theres a lot more of John McCains story that he needs to tell.

2. Well, well. Ain't that sensitive of Karl Rove ..
Now it's the "compassion" of the McCains ... a dying baby from Bangladesh ...
Eight years ago, she was an illegitimate "black baby" ...
Politics is a SICK SICK business.
Rove is SICK scum.

5. Yes. When McCain was running against *, the question was, "If you became aware of the fact that

John McCain is the father of an illegitimate black child, would this change your attitude toward him?" (approximate quote from push poll)

Not much "compassion and love" from Karl's folks in those moments, I'd say.

3. Rove's nickname sums him up:
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 12:19 PM by CJCRANE
"Turd Blossom, according to partisans of Karl Rove and George W. Bush, is a Texan term for a flower which grows from a pile of cow dung. The term has gained notoriety in the United States, as reportedly this is one of President George W. Bush's terms of endearment for his former chief political advisor, Karl Rove."

7. Nothing beats the race-card to get clicks on a thread
Race of a child has to do with what?

ps: you take McCain serious as an opponent at this stage of the game?

9. I think the point is Rove's amoral opportunism.
He shamelessly used her existence to drive voters away from McCain in 2000, and now it looks like he is trying to use her to gain voters. The only value anyone has to Karl Rove is how he can use them to achieve his own ends.

11. And the other part of the point is that it works.
Nobody ever went broke underestimating the perspicacity of the typical American voter.
