There’s a reason they are screaming so loudly over this one. They know it was an incredibly stupid thing to say and Republicans are doing everything they can to get that genie back in the bottle.
There’s no great mystery here. McCain’s (repeated) willingness to maintain a century-long presence in Iraq has become the single biggest mess for his campaign that Republicans can’t explain away.
Salon’s Benen calls is a “century-long problem”. John’s gotta feel it’s been almost that long and he can’t get everyone to stop saying “McCain”, “Iraq”, and “100 years” in the same sentence. Make it go away NRCC! Make it go away!
