Part of Cunningham's rant included calling Barack Obama a "hack, Chicago-style Daly politician," and told the crowd "all is going to be right with the world when the great prophet from Chicago takes the stand, and the world leaders who want to kill us will simply be singing Kumbaya around the table of Barack Obama."
McCain showed himself to be an honorable man by coming out to the cameras immediately after the event to apologize on behalf of his campaign. He indicated that his campaign had no advance knowledge of Cunningham's comments. Radio hosts often 'warm up the crowd' at some events. McCain indicated that Bill Cunningham won't be used in the campaign at any point in the future.
Obama campaign spokesman said that McCain's remarks were appreciated: "It is a sign that if there is a McCain-Obama general election, it can be intensely competitive but the candidates will attempt to keep it respectful and focused on issues."
For many who live in Cincinnati ... it is nice to see Cunningham get slapped down by the candidate!
