McCain Campaign Whines About Their Own Actions

I suppose it was inevitable that the McCain campaign would have to start complaining about Obama’s foreign trip, but one thing to keep in mind is that they brought it on themselves.

Now there’s a lot of transparent stupidity that’s just sort of a given in campaign politics, but this is just too much to bear. What exactly did McCain think the Obama response to continued goading about not having gone to Iraq was going to be? Especially so far out from the election?

There are, I think, two conclusions that could be drawn out of this. Either the McCain campaign recognizes they’re working from a large disadvantage and are just looking for something to stick effectively, or they, and by extension McCain, simply don’t think through their actions and draw logical conclusions as to what the results of those actions will be, and how others will react. I suppose I’d go with a little of both.
