Yesterday I said that the Clinton camp's "leak" was the day's best drama, part of the most captivating national election since my family set up our TV dinner trays around the clunky black-and-white Sylvania, ate mac and cheese (Velveeta) with diced hot dogs, and watched John Kennedy and Richard Nixon get tapped by their respective parties -- after real debates (where the moderators weren't the stars) and orgies of confetti and wildly waving convention placards.
But, no, something even better popped up.
Remember how Barack Obama spent weeks pirouetting around Rev. Wright until the political dam burst and the candidate finally issued some ringing, but still oratorical, slightly curled pinky repudiation?
John McCain has had his own reverend problem, the brimstone televangelist John C. Hagee. And the senator danced around a little about Hagee himself. And he got a pass for a while because the press was obsessed with the unrelenting Hillary.
But finally an audio tape has Hagee unloading something wild about Hitler and the Jews and McCain says this: That's just crazy.
Which made me laugh. Thank you, Senator, for being blunt. And for finding the perfect word of the day.
