NOUN-VERB-POW.com

Kossack James EB has made an interesting discovery:

One of the most memorable moments of the long primary season was Senator Joe Biden's quip that every statement made by Giuliani consisted of little more than "a noun, a verb, and 9/11." With devastating concision, Biden captured the hollow essence of Rudy's failed campaign.

It's become increasingly apparent that McCain is following the same sorry course, deflecting all criticism by referring to his years spent as a POW in Vietnam, rather than offering anything approaching a substantive rebuttal. This would be merely shameful, were it not for the fact that McCain insists (and the media reiterate) that he is reluctant to discuss this period of his life, or attempt to use it for political gain.

McCain is finally being called to account for this strategy of redirection--at least in some quarters--and it may very well be the case that the campaign is sufficiently worried about the backlash that it's taken measures to soften the blow. How else to account for the following:

This address takes one directly to McCain's campaign site! If the McCain campaign purchased this domain to prevent someone else doing so, that's one thing; but do they really want it linked directly to their website?



You know. . .something else has been eating at me about this whole deal. McCain likes to "uprade" every so often in the spousal department - do ya s'pose Cindy's feeling a bit like her predecessor right now? Just wondering out loud. . .

I looked at the source code for the page, and all it is is a frame that loads John McCain's actual site - BUT it puts its own snarky titles at the top of the browser window. Refreshing the page will bring up a different snarky title, such as "No Country For Old Man" or "Now with almost two years of "executive" experience!
