Joe Klein of Time, someone who pisses everyone off on all sides of the political landscape, has covered nine Presidential campaigns, including the Clinton campaign AFTER it was revealed he was the author of Primary Colors. Now, however, he has been banned from boarding McCain/Palin planes as part of the press entourage. Of course it is exceedingly petty and absurd that they would ban him because they do not like his coverage, but at the bottom of this Politico story about the affair is a quote that really sums it all up:
Campaign spokesperson Michael Goldfarb responded that “we don’t allow Daily Kos diarists on board either.”
I have stated repeatedly that the McCain campaign is being run by wingnut bloggers- that Michael Goldfarb, wingnut blogger for the Weekly Standard on loan to the McCain campaign, chooses to continuously confirm my assertion just makes it even funnier. On the upside, at least Goldfarb did not give us another Dungeons and Dragons reference.
