Maybe the McCain campaign did pick up something from PMO during his visit …


 

Like, say, how to pick one talking point, and make everyone learn it by heart, no matter how contrived it might look when more than one spokesperson is quoted in the same article:

“Charlie deeply regrets his comments. They were inappropriate and he recognizes that the candidate we work for has devoted his entire adult life to putting protecting his country and placing its security before every other consideration,” said Campaign Spokeswoman Jill
Hazelbaker.

Black told reporters in California exactly the same thing, according to the Associated Press: “I deeply regret the comments. They were inappropriate. I recognize that John McCain has devoted his entire adult life to protecting his country and placing its security before every other consideration.”

(Also, on the comments that elicited the synchronized regret — all I can say is ‘Yikes.’ And for the record, I’ve no doubt McCain – and his people – were genuinely shocked when they found out about it. Heck, I’d hope that this Charlie character was genuinely shocked the second he heard those words coming out of his mouth, but you never know. Politics can have a strange effect on one’s thought process at times.)

    We did everything we can for the time to fight the infringement from the US company. They bought out GreenShift.com from a non competitive website, and right at the same time registered the name in the US. We spent a lot of money – almost bancrupting ourselves in legal fees. We do own the US trademark on the name Green Shift and have done for a good few years. Main thing that made us decide to leave it for the time being was that we really are most concerned with Canada, we are protected in the US in the sense that no one can stop us, one day we might go back to it but altogether…. gotta pick your battles. For those asking about the other odd other use of the term Green Shift and asking why we don’t sue them. We believe life is too short to waste time, and if it is harmless, we would leave it. Having Canadas Liberal Party use the term for what essentially amounts to an environmental program, as opposed to our environmental program, and dealing with thousands on misdirected garbage emails … including a bunch from people thinking that we should like it – ugghhh!! Well, we sincerely appreciate all of you who have put forward your supportive words. Here is one example of a pleasant email we received this evening – and my response:

    Interesting in that the “garbage email” looks to be from a U.S. Conservative blogger (Dr. Zaius).
