FRANK JAMES (BALTIMORESUN.COM): MCCAIN APOLOGIZES FOR RADIO HOST'S OBAMA ATTACK

Talkshow host Willie Cunningham, who recently disparaged Barack Obama while introducing a John McCain rally, actually is on record doing much worse than "dropping the H-bomb, as in Hussein, which is, of course, Obama's middle name":

Cunningham said on air [10/1/07]: "The great war of this generation's time is the war against Islamic fascists.... They do not live for life, they live for death. Only through death can they believe they can be with those 72 virgins in heaven and have sex with children for eternity, which is the goal of that religion."

Far from taking McCain's people to task for putting such a bigot on the stage, though, James instead gives them credit for apologizing.

RLCC: Those who call themselves Muslims are no more uniformly followers of Mohammed then are those who call themselves Christians followers of Jesus. The fact is that many who call themselves Muslims are not in favor of many of the things advocated or commanded by Mohammed. That's good in a relative sense. That's because the truth is that Mohammed actually did teach that militant Islamic martyrs do get to spend eternity having sex with 72 theretofore virgin girls. It is a fact that that is what he taught. It is really wrong to suggest that no one should state that fact. The only wrong thing would be to lump all Islamic Arabs together for instance as being equally dangerous followers of Mohammed's lie about the so-called martyrs and 72 virgins.
