While discussing the press’ treatment of his friend, the Republican presidential candidate, Salter took specific aim at homo-journo Andrew Sullivan, who had previously speculated that McCain lifted his “cross in the sand” story from Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, which wasn’t the case. And Salter’s still salty about it:
Your blogging colleague over there seems to have lost his fucking mind, you know. Prior to Sarah Palin, he was accusing me of being a plagiarist, the whole Solzhenitsyn thing, the cross in the sand, and then it turned out that Sozhenitsyn didn’t write such a story. I mean, Jesus Christ, it’s just remarkable. This whole story about how [Sarah Palin’s] baby isn’t hers? Jesus Christ. Just crazy shit.
“Just crazy shit.” Yep, that about sums about the past billion months of campaigning. Remember that messiah crap? Wild!
[PS: Did we ever find out for sure McCain’s cross story was true?]
