Josh Marshall examines a question that will be critical in the fall campaign. Will The Associated Press and the rest of the media continue to swallow whole the McCain campaign's premise that quoting the candidate's own words (as above) amounts to unfair politics?

The link gives you ALL the context on McCain's repeated statements about commiting U.S. troops to Iraq forever.

McCain's only defense -- and it's purely theoretical, particularly in the bloodiest month in Iraq for U.S. troops since September -- is that some day Iraq will be like Germany as a troop assignment. You think?
