    Because they didn't happen.  Sure, they happened, but then they didn't.  

    Most people familiar with that time think he didn't fight back hard enough, and that is like not fighting at all when someone insults your family.  Honestly, if someone said that shit about my wife and kid, I'd beat the shit out of the bastard.  

    But politics has absolutely nothing to do with reality when it comes to campaigning.

    •  I think they were goading him (0+ / 0-)

      I am sickened by McCain's behavior now but it is SIMPLY NOT TRUE that he didn't defend his family back then.  I personally would have loved to see McCain beat the crap out of Falwell back then but, get real, duels at dawn went out with Burr and Hamilton.

      The "rap" against McCain him back then was that, "he had a bad temper."  Part of me thinks the Bush creeps purposely taunted him with that crap about his family, hoping he'd lash out.  When he did, they pounced on him.
