Tasty Rumor/Speculation: Scalia Writing the Majority Opinion on DC Guns Case | Main | Imus Again Seems to Step in It, This Time Going After Nappy-Headed Former Football Players

Gaffe Of The Day...This Time By McCain Adviser Charlie Black

A classic case of saying something that's doubtlessly true but shouldn't be said out loud.

"The assassination of Benazir Bhutto in December was an 'unfortunate event,' says Black. 'But his knowledge and ability to talk about it reemphasized that this is the guy who's ready to be Commander-in-Chief. And it helped us.' As would, Black concedes with startling candor after we raise the issue, another terrorist attack on U.S. soil. 'Certainly it would be a big advantage to him,' says Black."

Naturally and appropriately, McCain isn't amused.

"I cannot imagine why he would say it," said McCain. "Its not true. Ive worked tirelessly since 9/11 to prevent another attack on the United States of America."

"My record is very clear," he continued. "The Armed Services Committee, and pieces of legislation. Sponsoring with Joe Lieberman the 9/11 Commission so we could find out the causes and how to fix the challenges that we face to fix the security of our nation. I cannot imagine it. And, uh. So, I would...If he said that, and I do not know the context, I strenuously disagree."

That answer isn't very clear but I imagine he was surprised by the question and was trying not to say something along the lines of, 'that idiot said what?'

Expect Senator Obama (D- Hope and Change) to pounce on the whole, 'Republicans are trying to scare you' thing. Cause, that'll be a new line of attack for Democrats.

UPDATE: Black apologizes.

I deeply regret the comments -- they were inappropriate. I recognize that John McCain had devoted his entire adult life to protecting this country ... and placing its security above every other consideration.

And after he gets beat up on the cable shows tonight, we can all move on.
