McCain Pal Salter Has Bad Words For Sullivan

John McCain aide Mark Salter kind of lost it during an interview with The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg.

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?]

    Andrew Sullivan is a travesty to himself and the gay community. There can be no bigger asshole on the planet than this crackpot motherfucker!
