McCain Won't Let Muslim Campaign Worker Go on CNN

In a truly bizarre turn of events, the McCain campaign has taken their best shot at redemption and p***** all over it.

You may remember video from a rally this weekend where several young Muslim, McCain supporters (they do exist) confronted a man handing out anti-Islamic Obama literature at a McCain rally. A man from the McCain campaign, Daniel Zubairi, stepped up and intervened telling the man that his views did not represent the McCain campaign or the Constitution of the United States.

CNN was ready to hail Zubairi as a hero, and he was on the phone waiting for the interview, when the McCain camp yanked him and told him he didn't have permission to go on. From the Huffington Post:
"Wouldn't you think they would have wanted him to come on?" the CNN host would later tell the Huffington Post. "What the guy did was courageous. I called him heroic. I'm mystified why they wouldn't embrace him for his actions. Maybe they didn't like the story, but I'll tell you. I thought it was presented it in a very transparent way, if anything I kind of gushed philosophically about how impressive and real his reaction was to the protester's hateful message. It seemed to show some of the best of McCain supporters, didn't it?"
