McCain Base At Home

McCain Complains About the Media
Jake Tapper

The campaign of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., today issued a video and a contest to mock media infatuation with Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois.

Without exploring yet again what I think is a valid issue to debate, I do wonder how this comes across to his supporters or undecideds. After all, if there's any senator who has benefited from a generally friendly media it's McCain. His opponents in 2000 and 2008, his senate colleagues, and Democrats have been complaining for years that the media gives McCain a free ride.

This is like Britney Spears complaining that the hype around Miley Cyrus far exceeds her talent.
