The Most Patriotic and God-Loving Part of America

Following up on his brother and his advisor dissing Northern Virginia, McCain may well have walked into a similar trap in Pennsylvania. Marc Ambinder:

Referring to Rep. Jack Murtha’s remarks on the region’s alleged racism, McCain said: “I think you may have noticed that Sen. Obama’s supporters are saying some pretty nasty things about Western Pennsylvania lately.”

McCain: “And you know, I couldn’t agree with them more.”

“I couldn’t disagree with you.”

“I couldn’t agree with you more than the fact that Western Pennsylvania is the most patriotic, most God-loving, most patriotic part of America… this is a great part of the country.”

Forget about McCain blowing the line…

MOST patriotic?

MOST God-loving?

He may as well write off Pittsburgh and Philadelphia at this point and hope he can make up the difference in the rest of the state, although polls show him trailing Obama. Not a smart thing for a candidate to say in any state, but especially so in the one on which your entire election strategy is dependent on.

Update: Forgot to note that Sarah Palin ran into some trouble with her “Pro-America” comment at a recent event. She apologized for it during a recent interview with CNN.
