The Unfair Scrutiny of the McCains Goes On

Shares

Maybe I am old-fashioned, but I found this NBC interview of Cindy McCain to simply be too much. How can we ask the spouses of candidates to undergo grilling like this? No one deserves to face questions this challenging:

“What drives you to reach out to do so much? Adopt a child, reach out to all these different nations, care about Myanmar?” Curry asked. “And what does it say about what you might do as first lady?”

It’s going to be a long fall, folks.
