Who loves McCain? al-Qaeda loves John McCain.

Well why not? In an election year where it appears just about anything (neo-McCarthyism from Minnesota’s sixth to a black man heading a major party’s ticket) this shouldn’t surpise me, or anyone else for that matter. Apparently, al-Qaeda has endorsed John McCain for president. No, seriously. Really. I’m serious. You can’t make this stuff up! Calling McCain the "impetuous" Republican presidential candidate, a group with ties to al-Qaeda said the Arizona senator was best suited if al-Qaeda wants to "exhaust the US militarily and economically.” More from the message via the UK’s Telegraph: “This requires presence of an impetuous American leader such as McCain, who pledged to continue the war till the last American soldier," the message said. "Then, al-Qaeda will have to support McCain in the coming elections so that he continues the failing march of his predecessor, Bush." "If al-Qaeda carries out a big operation against American interests," it said, "this act will be support of McCain because it will push the Americans deliberately to vote for McCain so that he takes revenge for them against al-Qaeda. Al-Qaeda then will succeed in exhausting America till its last year in it." Well it will be interesting to see how the McCain camp handles this one. Sure, you could say the candidate obviously rejects the endorsement and doesn’t welcome the support, but this is the same campaign that just recently had Rudy Giuliani on the phone with reporters (check the blog) talking about Hamas’ endorsement of Barack Obama. What do you do now? Indeed, what do you do?
