It was not Sen. John McCain’s most chivalrous moment when, last November, campaigning in South Carolina, an older woman stood and asked him, “How do we beat the bitch?”
“That’s an excellent question,” McCain said. “You might know that there was a poll yesterday, a Rasmussen poll, identified, that shows me three points ahead of Senator Clinton in a head-to-head matchup.”
McCain added, “I respect Senator Clinton, I respect anyone who gets the nomination of the Democrat party.”
More on that HERE.
The reason I bring this up is that ABC News’ sagacious Kate Snow reports that just now in St. Louis, Mo., a woman asked Clinton a question, referring to President Bush as “George the bastard.”
“Clinton smiled and laughed mildly before regaining her composure and looking serious,” Snow reports. “Clinton made no effort to correct this questioner’s language or reprimand her.”
McCain was hammered by the Left for his response to that language being used about a colleague. How will Clinton’s response be received?
