McCain Gives Hagee The Boot

After seeking out his endorsement just a few months earlier, John McCain has repudiated that endorsement after new comments by the controversial pastor emerged.
Republican presidential candidate John McCain rejected the months-old endorsement of an influential Texas televangelist after an audio recording surfaced in which the preacher said God sent Adolf Hitler to help Jews reach the promised land.

"Obviously, I find these remarks and others deeply offensive and indefensible, and I repudiate them. I did not know of them before Reverend Hagee's endorsement, and I feel I must reject his endorsement as well," the presidential candidate said in a statement issued Thursday.
Interesting thought that it took disparaging comments towards Jews to get McCain to drop Hagee but apparently he didn't have much of an issue with Hagee's crusade against the Catholic Church which had been well known even before McCain sought Hagee's endorsement.
