In response to the furor around Fred Davis’ proposed ads against President Obama using Rev. Wright, Mark Salter, long-time McCain adviser, said this:
“Fred is a creative guy, but he requires round-the-clock adult supervision. If you take your eyes off him for a moment, you’re chasing demon sheep, witches and the yellow peril.”
“He would attack people in a smug way that was harder-edged and more insulting than was necessary. He was a bully who was not a potent enough force to be a bully.”
Mark Salter (John McCain’s former chief of staff) describing Rick Santorum during his time in Congress.
