As Ann Althouse notes, judging by the tone of his voice, and the laughter that follows, I’m pretty sure McCain is kidding in the above clip, especially when bloggers and new media outlets such as Ed Morrissey and Pajamas were part of McCain’s key media outreach strategy when he (a) needed to woo the base during the primaries and (b) was relatively cash starved. And note that McCain’s camp has even attempted to reach out–in that patented it won’t work but it looks good to squishy undecided voters Maverick style–across the Blogospheric aisle to prominent leftwing bloggers as well.
