John McCain on 60 Minutes, furthers myth that support of troop surge helped secure nomination

I am convinced that the McCain/Palin campaign can say anything that they want and no one will call them on it.  John McCain said on Sunday’s 60 Minutes that his campaign was going nowhere until he announced his support of an increase in troop levels in Iraq.  This is an outlandish assertion.

John McCain won his party’s nomination because he was much farther to the left than his closest rivals, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee.  The very base of the party that he now panders to did everything that they could to derail his bid for the White House.   So his assertion goes something like this:

A:  I supported the surge.

B:  I won my party’s nomination.

C: I won my party’s nomination because I supported the surge.

This could not be further from the truth.

As an aside, he says he followed Sarah Palin very carefully and watched her career though he only met her “a couple” of times.  O.K. John.
