Interestingly, supporters of the Republican presidential nominee were having none of it, and booed John McCain at a campaign stop when he referred to Barack Obama as “decent.”
We say suck it up, whiny right-wingers. Now you know how we’ve been rolling for the past eight years.
Of course it’s hard to say whether McCain’s new-found respectfulness marks a change of heart or simply a change of strategy.
The good news is that one way or the other, it’s likely not enough to save McCain’s McCrappy McCampaign.
