McCain Had Cancer Surgery, Didn’t Report It

AMERICAblog: So, to clarify AP’s headline “McCain appears cancer free, healthy” – they really meant “this month.”

Nice. From AP:

McCain’s most recent exams show a range of health issues common in aging: He frequently has precancerous skin lesions removed, and in February had an early stage squamous cell carcinoma, an easily cured skin cancer, removed. He had benign colon growths called polyps taken out during a routine colonoscopy in March.

McCain isn’t cancer-free if he had cancer 3 months ago. What a ridiculously sloppy AP headline, and now this will be the story – McCain is cured! (Except that he had cancer as recently as 3 months ago – hey, maybe Pastor Parsley healed him?) Anybody else troubled that candidate McCain was running for the GOP nomination, went for cancer surgery, and didn’t bother telling anyone? What else isn’t he bothering to tell us, and won’t he tell us in the future? If this is McCain’s standard for disclosure about his medical condition, we’d need weekly document dumps of his medical files because McCain clearly has a policy of hiding his true medical condition while running for president.
