Andrew Kaczynski of Buzzfeed has been unearthing all kinds of embarrassing, long-buried stuff this cycle that gives the Republican primary candidates severe headaches and indigestion.
Now he’s gotten hold of John McCain’s 2008 opposition research file on Mitt Romney. It has about 30 pages of anti-Bain material that sound very much like the charges Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich have been making about Bain, charges that McCain has been denouncing as “anathema to everything we believe in.” To which Sarah Palin reacted, “Anathema? Isn’t that The Star–Spangled Banner?”
Since John McCain has endorsed Mitt, that 2008 file is about the last thing either of them wanted to surface.
