Just when you thought the 9th District congressional race in Georgia had gone over the top, there’s this from The Hill newspaper in D.C.:
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) slammed Rep. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) on Wednesday for releasing a mailer that referred to his primary opponent as “going both ways.”
McCain also endorsed Schweikert’s primary opponent, Rep. Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.), and said the mailer sent by Schweikert was one of the “worst that I have seen.”
“This is not appropriate. This crosses a boundary of decent political dialogue and discourse. This is not something that is acceptable at all,” McCain said at an Arizona press conference.
Ben Quayle is the son of the former vice president. The Schweikert campaign insists it was speaking of Quayle’s flip-flops on issues and intended no innuendo.
Ladies and gentlemen, I’m hesitant to leave commenting open on this one. Prove me wrong.
