John “I hate Gooks” McCain

Senator John McCain sees no problem with his former running-mate’s advice that Republicans should “reload” and “aim for” Democrats in next fall’s elections.

Sarah Palin’s use of gun imagery in addressing her followers on Twitter and Facebook has been criticized as potentially inciting threats of violence, like those which are already being directed towards Democratic members of Congress who voted for health care reform.

“Considering these threats, these concerns that we’ve been hearing about regarding violence, do you now recommend that your party use less incendiary language?” NBC’s Ann Curry asked McCain on Thursday.

“I have seen the rhetoric of ‘targeted districts’ as long as I’ve been in politics,” McCain responded, chuckling. “To say that there’s a targeted district or that we ‘reload’ or ‘got back into the fight again.’ Please.”

McCain knows about the wave of violence (actual violence) and threats made against liberals and Democrats. He must be really worried about that primary challenge from the far right of his party this year to have agreed with Palin’s language, a politician he know longer sees and probably wishes he’d never met. Either that or he’s a real dirt bag. Or perhaps both.
