I saw this interview on a CNN podcast, actually. McCain claimed he could get bin Laden, and Blitzer went only so far as to ask him how; McCain replied:

I’m not going to telegraph a lot of the things that I’m going to do because then it might compromise our ability to do so. But, look, I know the area, I have been there, I know wars, I know how to win wars, and I know how to improve our capabilities so that we will capture Osama bin Laden — or put it this way, bring him to justice…We will do it, I know how to do it.

The obvious question after that was, “if you know how to capture bin Laden, Senator, then why haven’t you told the current president how to do so, or if you have, why hasn’t he put your plan into motion?”

Naturally, Blitzer didn’t ask that. Instead, he asked McCain to dance his victory dance and simply presume bin Laden has been captured, so “what do you do with him?” Then Blitzer sped ahead to talk about a “new controversy” about Obama, putting them on the “defensive,” with the word “SNUB” big in the subtitle, pronouncing “Doesn’t meet with wounded troops.”

Not in the podcast: McCain saying that he approved of the 16-month time table for withdrawal, which was the biggest story of the day. They edited that part out.

Don’tcha just love the Liberal Media™?

    Telegraph, what the hell is that:

    “An electrical telegraph was independently developed and patented in the United States in 1837 by Samuel F. B. Morse.”(from wikipedia)

    I know it’s reaching, but for McCain who has admitted to not knowing squat about computers, using the expression “telegraph” just further accentuates how OLD he is.
