McCain Openly Courts Hagee

We’ve noted here a few times in the past that John McCain has admitted to meeting with Armageddon advocate John Hagee of Christians United for Israel, though such admission have also been buried in news articles chronicling McCain’s difficulties winning over the Right.

Well, it looks as if McCain and Hagee are about to bring their relationship into the open, judging by this press release from CUFI:

It’s not much of a “surprise” appearance if CUFI is announcing it a day in advance, now is it?  In fact, the only thing surprising about this at all is that McCain and Lieberman would agree to share the stage with a man who wants to bring about Armageddon and the subsequent return of Jesus Christ by launching a military strike on Iran.
