McCain (Finally) Rejects John C. Hagee’s Endorsement

So after actively seeking controversial pastor John C. Hagee’s endorsement, then regretting doing so but being glad to have it, John McCain has decided it’s time to reject it. I wonder what exactly it was that drove McCain to do so? Hagee’s recent acknowledgement that Katrina was punishment brought down upon the people of  New Orleans for a gay parade of large scale (Gee, I didn’t know God had collateral damage when he’s divying out his wrath)? Or was it that Hagee believes Hitler was a messenger of God and killed all those millions of jews so that they could be sent back to the promised land of Israel?

I suspect this is going to upset a lot of Evangelicals who are fans of Hagee’s. I wonder how McCain is going to go about courting the Evangelical vote now. Maybe some other “agent of intolerance”?

Apparently it has upset Hagee enough to say “You can’t reject my endorsement… because I withdraw it!” He released a statement soon after CNN reported McCain’s rejection saying that he would remain outside of the 2008 election.

  1. He was losing moderate and independent voters by embracing this nut job Christian Zionist. It was a decision based solely on numbers. McCain has no idealogical core, he is a pudding brained war-monger who will destroy this nation if given the chance.

  2. Recently Frank Rich of the New York Times try to make a comparison between Obama’s Reverend Wright situation and John Hagee backing McCain. this is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. Don’t believe me? Check out this article Another Comparison Between John Hagee and Jeremiah Wright.
