The Won could not be held accountable in September, there was no effort made to make this part of the political campaign for President, and after the fact is when the defenses are put up most strongly.
Actually, the defense could be pretty weak, and it would still not be effectively challenged by the current crop of the GOP Establishment, of which John McCain is a major player. There is a strong reluctance to go after Bronco Bama on ANY level, as this would invoke the reminder of a shadowy person out there by name of Ray Sist, who has never been either photographed or interviewed, but with whom nobody ever wants to be associated.
Political Correctness, either the refusal or the inability to call the situation as it actually exists, is the hobgoblin of small minds everywhere, even more than a foolish consistency, which is its first cousin.
Nice one. ROFL I was a click away from Googling to see who Ray Sist was...
