Hating Politics, Revised

Yesterday I mentioned what a blatant mistake Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty made while speaking on behalf of the John McCain for President Campaign to Wolf Blitzer during Late Edition on CNN. I just found the transcript and wanted to post the exact text of that transcript (courtesy CNN transcripts):

Obama "also doesn't want to address, very clearly, the AMT, and he wants to boost capital gains taxes from 15 percent to almost double that. So if you have an IRA or a 401(k), which a lot of middle Americans do, and you go to retire or use that money, you're going to pay almost double the rate in taxation."

I encourage anyone with an interest in responsible media, responsible politicians and a well-informed American public to contact CNN's Late Edition by going to and looking for "Contact Us" on the left side of the screen. Also, please contact the McCain campaign at, which lists a mailing address, phone number and email submission form. If you find any other ways to get in contact with the campaign, Pawlenty himself or CNN, please let me know.
