  •  That's what McCain needs. (5+ / 0-)

    Lousy publicity is better than no publicity.  Democrats and progressives have been dissing Bush Two for seven years.  You'd think we'd have learned that lesson.  
    "He must be doing something right, if so many people are against him," is a rather common perspective, especially among the fearful and paranoid.
    That said, courting antagonism actually seems to be a Republican strategy this time around.  Huckabee got a lot of positive mileage from the Club for Growth "attacks" in Iowa.
    At a minimum, the McCain campaign is chalking up a significant sympathy vote for whoever turns out to be the Republican candidate when he has to "drop out" for health reasons.  They'll even be able to argue that the liberal attacks wore him out.

    How do you tell a predator from a protector? The predator will eat you sooner rather than later.
