Families “Off Limits”

As John McCain now proclaims, with Barack Obama's complete agreement, that the children of the candidates should be "off limits" it would be good for everyone to remember how the Republicans treated Chelsea Clinton back in the 1990s.

From the Crooks and Liars blog:

John McCain made this odious joke about Chelsea Clinton back in '98.

Why is Chelsea Clinton so ugly? Because her father is Janet Reno."

Sen. John McCain, speaking to a Republican dinner, June 1998.

Somehow, the TV pundits have short memories and seem to forget the gaffes of McCain.
McCain's character is on display from time to time. The pundits don't get it.

The Republican party has certainly come full circle. How is it that the party that stood tall against secessionists in the Civil War and, more recently, the party known for shouting of their patriotism and known for the wearing of flag lapel pins, has selected a V.P. candidate who as mayor attended a "cut and run" secessionist meeting held in her home town.
