McCain and The Two Step Dissemble

Shortly after "repudiating" the Reverend John Hagee's statement that Adolph Hitler's actions were merely the Will of Gawd (but not necessarily last testament) John Mccain made sure to let everyone know:
"I have said I do not believe Senator Obama shares Reverend Wright's extreme views. But let me also be clear, Reverend Hagee was not and is not my pastor or spiritual advisor, and I did not attend his church for twenty years. I have denounced statements he made immediately upon learning of them, as I do again today."
All well and good, I suppose. Except that McCain actively sought this guy's endorsement at a time when he was neck and neck with the Reverend Mike Huckabee for the hearts and votes of evangelical psychos and used them to pull away and earn the Republican endorsement for President. Except that McCain's actual spiritual guide (the Reverend Rod Parsley) says this:
"Islam is an anti-Christ religion that intends through violence to conquer the world."
And
"America was founded with the intention of seeing this false religion destroyed and I believe Sept. 11, 2001 was a generational call to arms that we can no longer ignore."
And McCain has yet to "repudiate" Parsley. Not that extremist Islamics don't intend to conquer the woeld and force Islam down everyone's throats, just like the extremist Christians intend to do (see Ann Coulter and "Let's go in and convert them or kill them").
Hmmm, "rupudiate Parsley" sounds like something one would do with a zester or a slicer or something. I'd be satisfied with a boiling and basting.
