    I heard about this in local news because it is a local school.

    The California Majority Report // McCain?s Walter Reed Gaffe -- One for the Yearbook?

    Has this story had any real mention outside of the LA area?

    McCain's team is either very poorly organized, or was just grabbing random clips (WTF?) for their candidate's major speech.

    Very weird.

    Haha, the "truth" sounds like a horrible attempt to covering a mistake.

    I have to admit, this is pretty funny.

    Thanks for your honesty, jsanders. This does look like a tap dance. McCain would be better served by saying, "Oops, we screwed up."

    Inability to admit a mistake is a character flaw.

    LOL I am glad I am not the only one that thinks that... I agree it is funny. And definitely weird.

    I had heard that they were refusing to comment on it initially, so the fact that they now have this extensive description of why the backdrop was purposefully chosen seems odd, also. :lol:

    Yes, from the article describing that the school is in a heavily democratic district and some of the teachers were horrified and the school issued a statement saying that the use of its image should not be taken as an endorsement!

    I'm thinking not so much.

    As it turns out the "truth" was a fictious news article.

    Searching the Associated Press' website there is no such story.

    AP Search
