One growing indication of how John McCain has been taking Mitt Romney head on has been their press release wars. It used to be not long ago that my e-mail box was filled with Romney announcements; now it’s the other way around, as hour after hour I get a McCain release crowing about endorsements John’s receiving from everyone out there, ranging from the president of the University of Florida to the speaker of the Oklahoma House of Representatives.
But the one that took the cake was yesterday’s announcement that in time for the New York primary former Sen. Alfonse D’Amato is backing McCain. So what does Senator Pothole like about the Anti-Porker, and vice versa?
D’Amato is artful when he asserts McCain’s the guy “[i]f America really wants a leader who will change the landscape in Washington, change the way we do business in government, change the way government spends your money so it defends your interests…”
McCain has less to say in response. In fact, you can almost see him rolling his eyes as he begins: “Al D’Amato has dedicated his life to serving the people of New York….”
