LeBoutillier Embraces Sampley As Source
Topic: Newsmax

In his Jan. 28 Newsmax attack piece on John McCain, John LeBoutillier lists as one of the reasons why McCain is "totally out of step with the GOP voters": "He has a terrible anger problem. (See Ted Sampley's excellent article at the US Veteran Dispatch.)"

Sampley is a longtime hater of McCain best known for calling him a "Manchurian candidate" -- a meme Paul Weyrich tried to spread about McCain in 2000 -- and for punching a McCain staffer, for which he was sentenced to two days in jail, six months probation and an order to stay away from McCain. Sampley was also behind an anti-McCain screed mailed to media outlets in South Carolina before the recent primary that appropriated Swift Boat Vets imagery (spelled "Swift Boot Vets for Truth). Sampley's website also features a picture of Barack Obama doctored to loook like an African savage.

Is this a guy LeBoutillier really wants to rely on as a source of information?

McCain is a prime target at Newsmax today: Diane Alden and Ronald Kessler also weigh in with anti-McCain pieces. In a bit of insider dealing, Kessler cites LeBoutillier as a source, quoting him as saying, "I think [McCain] is mentally unstable and not fit to be president."
