Just surfing (and boosting) through BlogExplosion I came upon this post, which I take at face value: I’ve Heard It All: Karl Rove on McCain’s “Black Love Child.
I was at lunch and was flipping through the radio stations and heard Karl Rove being interviewed on Sean Hannity’s radio show. It wasn’t a very interesting conversation until near the end. Rove complimented John McCain and his wife Cindy for their family values (more on that later). He mentioned Cindy’s “love and devotion” for the ill three month-old infant she rescued from a Bangladeshi orphanage (the McCains later adopted the child).
Let’s go back to the 2000 election. Rove was behind a whisper campaign right before the South Carolina primary (right after McCain trounced George W. Bush in the New Hampshire primary). Among the rumors spread by Rove and company were that Cindy McCain was a drug addict and that the Bangladeshi child they had was McCain’s black “love child.”
