McCain on Hagee -- The Latest Twist

From Josh Marshall:

Last we heard from John McCain he was denouncing John Hagee's anti-Catholic statements while holding on to his endorsement. But now McCain seems to be having second thoughts. Today McCain went on Hugh Hewitt's Bill Bennett's show and explained that while he would condemn Hagee's anti-Catholic remarks if they were actually anti-Catholic that he's not actually sure they were anti-Catholic. He now points out that Hagee says the remarks were taken out of context and that he'd appreciate if Hagee can be allowed to explain his remarks.
