It’s all the buzz in the media today: Colin Powell’s backstabbing of his friend John McCain. The liberal press, anxious to bury the Republican Presidential nominee, can’t hide their contention that Powell’s endorsement of Barack Obama is yet another nail in the GOP coffin. Not surprisingly, print and electronic media pundits seem united in their assessment that the endorsement is the death knell for the McCain campaign in these final two weeks.
Powell denies his choice is based on race. Rush Limbaugh isn’t buying it and took this beauty of a shot in an e-mail to Politico:
"Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race. OK, fine. I am now researching his past endorsements to see if I can find all the inexperienced, very liberal, white candidates he has endorsed. I'll let you know what I come up with.
I was also unaware of his dislike for John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy and Antonin Scalia. I guess he also regrets Reagan and Bush making him a four-star and secretary of state and appointing his son to head the FCC. Yes, let's hear it for transformational figures."
Powell might also deny that he’s a sellout and deny that he gave the big wet kiss to Obama in hopes of landing a White House position. Yeh, right.
