While John McCain's recent ridiculous conflations of Al Qaeda and Iran were reported somewhat in the MSM (though Chuck Todd admits that they let him off the hook in a way they would not have either Obama or Clinton if they had made such erroneous statements), much less was made of it than the controversy of Rev. Wright's statements (even though being right about foreign policy is inarguably more important to the presidency than being associated with some opinionated pastor). But what's worse is that John McCain has received the endorsements of John Hagee and Rod Parsley, who have blamed 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina on American's sin, attack homosexuals, etc.
The argument from the right-wing of course is that McCain doesn't have the "20-year history" with him that Barack Obama has to Jeremiah Wright. But Obama has disavowed with Wright's statements, while McCain has not disavowed the statements of his own crazy religious supporters. Obama also explained eloquently how it would be dishonest to dismiss Wright when he hold such a close personal friends as much as he disagrees, while McCain actively sought the endorsement of right-wing nutjob Hagee for his political gain. And he even called Parsley a "spiritual guide!"
But again, little has been made of this in our mainstream media. Whether the views of these people is really relevant or not is perhaps a different discussion. But if it is talked about incessantly about one candidate, it must be fairly so towards other candidates as well.
