As if we needed further proof that (a) McCain has completely lost his mind and (b) the McCain campaign is playing the race card. Irony is completely lost on this man!http://www.politico.com/blogs/jonathanmartin/1008/McCain_keeps_pounding_on_John_Lewis_statement.html

McCain keeps pounding on John Lewis statementHe said in an interview with a Florida TV station today that the Georgia congressman's invocation of George Wallace and Birmingham amounted to "the most outrageous and disgraceful thing that Iíve seen in American politics."
McCain also compared his denunciation of the over-the-line statements of GOP party officials about Obama to the Democrat's relative silence on Lewis.
ďThere have been statements made that Iíve had to repudiate by certain GOP operatives or apparatchiks," McCain said. "Congressman Lewis is one of the most respected and admired men in America."
Perhaps not the best way to inspire your own party three weeks out from Election Day ó apparatchiks! ó but it gets the point across.
