McCain's useful idiot

. Charlie Black has certainly managed to put his foot in it; he inadvertently let slip what we all know, that the Republicans best campaign agent would be a terrorist attack. This is not, of course, to go along with the more paranoid conspiracy theories but it is to recognise that the Republicans have used the politics of fear as the their main recruiting tool.

Speaking to Fortune magazine Black admitted that another terrorist attack on US soil would "certainly" be a "big advantage" to McCain. Black didn't stop their, he said that the assassination of the former Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto in December was "unfortunate" but had helped McCain to win the New Hampshire primary, a state he had to win to save his candidacy.

Black said;

"His knowledge and ability to talk about it reemphasised that this is the guy who's ready to be commander in chief. And it helped us."

Black has apologised but no doubt he has provided plenty of ammunition for the Obama campaign....
