McCain, Hayworth camps taking swipes at each other

Posted without much comment, mostly because the sight of Republicans tearing strips off of each other is highly entertaining on its own merits. :)

From -

A former Arizona attorney general filed a federal complaint Tuesday seeking to stop KFYI radio-talk show host J.D. Hayworth from using his microphone to promote a potential primary race against Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

The complaint filed by Grant Woods with the Federal Election Commission claims Hayworth, a former Republican congressman, cannot use his radio show to further his latest political aspirations. Woods estimates Clear Channel Communications, which broadcasts Hayworth's program, is effectively providing air time to Hayworth that would cost $540,000 each week to rebut in radio ads.

{snip, to include my favorite line in the article, emphasis mine}

"He's [McCain's] more distraught about the Cardinals' (loss Monday night) than a potential Hayworth candidacy," Woods said.

*SMACK* goes the McCain campaign. :)
