So, McCain does much better than Obama in a televised forum dealing with religious issues. Why is that exactly? Well, Team Obama has the answer:
“Of course McCain looked good,” the anonymous Obama aide said. “He didn’t have to worry about how his answer would be perceived. He didn’t have to work to recall his talking points. He didn’t have to think, or even try to look like he was thinking. All he had to do was blurt out what he believed. Clearly, this gave him an unfair advantage, and we think the American people will see this for what it is…another Republican smear tactic.”
The aide added: "Yeah, McCain has to just say what he believes while we have to lie through our teeth. I mean, c'mon, what kind of moron believes all that bible crap anyway??"
