While driving home this evening, I had a spirited conversation with Stacy McCain. Mr. McCain is somewhat irritated with some podcaster named Larry Sinclair because of air time he gave to Cabin Boy Bill Schmalfeldt to attack Ali Akbar. You can get a sense of Mr. McCain’s feelings in this post.
I haven’t heard the podcast, and I don’t have time for it right now. But let me say this: There’s an election next Tuesday, and it’s vitally important that we turn the rascals out. Even if you don’t like someone working to defeat Barack Obama, for the next four days the enemy of your enemy is your friend. We can sort out other issues beginning on Wednesday.
As for relying on CBBS as a source … He is a known associate of First Mate Neal Rauhauser, a member of Team Kimberlin, and a selective leaker of sealed court documents. His bumbling style reminds me of the Foreign Office klutz played by Rowan Atkinson in Never Say Never Again (Nigel Small-Fawcett).
It may be that there are some folks whose reputations will need looking into after the election is settled, but accusations from the likes of CBBS should be taken with a grain of salt.
Go hit The Other McCain tip jar. I just did. He can use the support while on the road in Ohio covering the election.
