McCain's pastor II UPDATE

Posted By on Fri, May 23, 2008 at 10:04 AM

John McCain has jettisoned the vile John Hagee. But what about Rod Parsley? He hasn't distanced himself from Parsley, who is equally odious and who has called for the destruction of Islam.

UPDATE: Call it a political deathbed conversion. McCain, who went to Ohio in February to embrace Parsley, now has decided -- since some light is being shed on Parsley's long history of intolerance -- that he doesn't want his endorsement after all. Of course he now has the Republican nomination. He needed Parsley to go after evangelicals earlier. Now, situational ethics apply.

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
