Robert Novak Learns It Is Better to be Right than First

Yesterday journalist Robert Novak floated the idea that John McCain might be announcing his runnig mate this week. Other jounalists scoffed at the idea and thought it might be a McCain ploy to get some media attention.  Today Novak said he believes he was used to create a little McCain buzz. “I got a suggestion from a very senior McCain aide that he was gonna announce it this week,” Novak told Fox News. “And they suggested I put it out … so I just put something on the internet. I since have been told by certain people that this was a dodge, trying to get a little publicity to rain on Obama’s campaign,” he said. “That’s pretty reprehensible if it’s true.” Novak consider yourself another victim of the Straight Talk Express.
