No seriously, for real.
I think this will definitely have an effect election numbers. The story says they couldn’t tell whether this was a McCain move but… c’mon. This was a McCain move, and (in purely pragmatic terms concerning the election) a good one at that.
I can’t figure out the very last bit where it says this disclosure comes one day after Obama confirmed Onyango was his aunt. Why was anyone asking whether Onyango was his aunt before anything interesting about her was disclosed?
Maybe a source from McCain said to the news outlets “Check out this Onyango woman. She’s Obama’s aunt.” Then let the news outlets do their own digging.
