While Obama was turning the trip McCain goaded him to take into a How to Look Presidential training film, McCain was melting down. There was the Iraq/Pakistan border gaffe -- and the far more serious confusion about the role of the surge in the Anbar Awakening. There was the ludicrous ad trying to pin high gas prices on Obama -- and the loathsome attempt to turn Obama's somber visit to a Holocaust museum into a political gotcha. There were the complaints about the media's "love affair" with Obama -- arriving at the same time CBS left McCain's surge blunder on the editing room floor. And there was the repugnant accusation that "Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign." File this week under: Be Careful What You Wish For.
