McCain Blogger Flubs His Roll

If you’re a gamer, you’ve prob­a­bly heard the hoorah by now. Michael Gold­farb, a blog­ger on McCain’s offi­cial cam­paign site added a lame anti-gamer slur to his rinse-and-repeat “but he was a POW!” bull­shit. Sam (and many oth­ers) respond­ed to the twit (who keeps com­ments dis­abled on his blog – afraid of a lit­tle com­men­tary, Gold­farb?). This isn’t the first time McCain’s peo­ple have attacked their oppo­nents with com­ments about D&D, either, as some of the folks on Boing Boing have point­ed out.

Gold­farb was respond­ing to a post on the Dai­ly Kos that called McCain on his pla­gia­rism dur­ing a media event this week­end. The DK blog­ger has a nice response.

Gold­farb has sup­pos­ed­ly apol­o­gized, but odd­ly enough, his “apol­o­gy” isn’t post­ed on his blog, or any­where else on McCain’s site as far as I can tell. If he isn’t man enough to make the apol­o­gy in the same venue in which he post­ed the attack, that says a lot about him and the entire McCain cam­paign.1

Piti­ful, real­ly. I’ve got a prob­lem with any politi­cian will­ing to just write off any group of peo­ple.
