McCain's "A blog you can believe in"

Okay, maybe I am the last to find out. But just in case I am not, do you know that there is something called the "McCain Report" on McCain's web site? And that the sub-title for the Report is, I kid you not, "A blog you can believe in." http://www.johnmccain.com/mccainreport/ Just how sad is this? The McCain people can't even come up with their own slogans. (And this is not the only use of Obama slogans on the site.)
Below is currently (June 16, 1:00 AM EST) the first entry on the blog. First, they don't get (or want to get) Obama's joke, that is, his play on the quotation from "The Untouchables," and second, they make a weak stab at humor. I don't think that this is an organization that has much going for it.....We shall see.

Obama Flip-Flop on Gun Control? Or New Politics? Or Both?
Barack Obama appeared at a fundraiser in Philadelphia last night where he delivered the following remark:
'If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.'
A couple thoughts from McCain HQ on this. First, Barack Obama has a long track record as a proponent of stringent gun-control regulations--to the point that a questionnaire filled out by his staff, and with the candidate's handwriting on it, stated that Obama favored a ban on the manufacture, sale, and distribution of handguns. Can we assume that Senator Obama now opposes efforts to ban the possession of handguns?
Second, would Obama be carrying a concealed weapon to this fight? Will he have a permit?
And finally, we're having second thoughts about our proposed series of town halls."
