The Verdict: Teflon John

Get the feeling that Dan Abrams reads the blogs? On Tuesday's Verdict, Abrams introduced a new recurring segment: Teflon John, documenting all the ways that Republican presidential candidate John McCain gets a free ride from the mainstream media. First example: McCain's infamous "100 years in Iraq" statement. While Washington Times' Tony Blankley tries to muddy the water, Abrams, with Gen. Wesley Clark and Joan Walsh, point out rightfully that neither of the Democratic candidates would have been able to get away with such a statement.
