He Who Shall Not Be Named

In an interview with CNN, McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb goes through awkward contortions to imply Jeremiah Wright without actually uttering his name.

Goldfarb's performance here also seems to remove any lingering question marks about whether this week's revival of a 6 month old LA Times story about Obama's friendship with a Palestinian scholar was intended to send a last-minute message to Jewish voters. Jews make up about 5% of the electorate in the crucial swing state of Florida, where polls show the race too close to call. Both McCain and Obama campaigned in Florida yesterday.
