Two Pundits From the “Bartlet Adminstration” Weigh In on Controversy

When Arianna Huffington wound up in a dispute with John McCain she was fortunate to have two members of The West Wing’s fictional Bartlet Administration on hand to back up her story. On Monday Huffington wrote that John McCain told her at a dinner party that he had not voted for George W. Bush in 2000. McCain denied this. Both The New York Times and The Washington Post have printed stories in which Bradley Whitford (Josh Lyman), and Richard Schiff (Toby Ziegler), have backed up Arianna’s account.

Maybe McCain is much slyer than he is given credit for. While some Republicans might object, it could help McCain to have stories such as this demonstrating that even he realized that Bush was dangerous and he didn’t trust him.
