McCain Head Spot Photos Dirty Pool?
Hotline is dubious of Matt Drudge’s skills and suspects foul play:
Suddenly, Drudge has sophisticated image capturing software and a detailed obsession with the nooks and blemishes on Sen. John McCain’s head? Nah. This is a tasteless bit of oppo sent Drudge’s way by an overconfident opponent of McCain’s who wants to exploit McCain’s vulnerable political status right now by forcing the campaign to answer questions about his age and health.
It wouldn’t surprise me in the least were another candidate’s team behind this, although either of the shots at the link could have been taken by a blind chimp with a cell phone camera; they’re not exactly state-of-the-art.
Drudge is an annoying propagandist, to be sure, but touting controversial issues is what he does for a living. Further, it’s not unreasonable to be curious about the health of a 70-year-old man who has had skin cancer on three separate occasions, let alone one who spent five years being tortured by the Viet Cong.
In any case, I got a chuckle out of this closing to the Hotline article:
We’re not accusing anyone — we’re just accusing someone. Just not sure who.
