Republican Party of Virginia chairman Jeff Frederick finds himself in a bit of hot water after pointing out an ugly link between Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden.
Obama and bin Laden “both have friends that bombed the Pentagon,” Del. Frederick told a group of Republican volunteers.
Gail Gitcho, a spokeswoman for the McCain campaign, a group that contemns freedom of political speech, called Del. Frederick’s comparison “not appropriate”.
Ms. Gitcho explained, “While Barack Obama is associated with domestic terrorist William Ayers, the McCain campaign disagrees with the comparison that Jeff Frederick made.”
