McCain's Sour Grapes: Campaign manager insults Powell

In a pathetic display of poor sportsmanship, McCain campaign manager Rick Davis insulted Colin Powell today on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. When asked for his reaction to Powell's endorsement of Barack Obama, Davis said:

"Look, I doubt if Colin Powell is equipped to do a whole lot of political prognostication [fancy word for predictions]."

Considering Powell was Secretary of State for four years, National Security Advisor for eight years and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for four years, I'd say he was more than qualified to talk politics. It's the ultimate sign of sour grapes for Davis to slight Powell - who McCain described as one of the world's most "most credible, most respected" men - simply because he doesn't endorse McCain's sleazy campaign.

Davis went on to say, "what his views are on the political scene are completely up to him." No doubt Davis would be singing an entirely different tune had Powell endorsed McCain.
