McCain Thinks Biden Is Right

McCain's campaign has been making hay out of the fact that when Biden was running for president he took a few negative jabs at Obama. Of course that's the way it goes when you're going for the nomination. But now McCain -- putting aside the way it goes and taking all this very literally -- is citing Biden's words as proof that Obama isn't ready for president.

But that old knife cuts both ways. If Biden's words against Obama are credible, then Biden's words against McCain need to be taken as credible. And Biden has some pretty sharp things to say about McCain.

McCain needs to watch it. Because if he's looking to Biden for attacks on Obama to be taken seriously, face it, it's the same mouth now. When Biden jabs McCain, McCain has no right to suddenly say Biden's wrong.

This is a "live by the sword, die by the sword" thing. But of course he'll pull back after these initial jabs, because that will no doubt be pointed out.
