How Not to Ask for Help

The accounts of yesterday's McCain rally in Nashville are baffling.

Half of the stories deal with McCain acknowledging that he needs energized conservatives supporting him in Tennessee to have the Volunteer State in the red column come November.

The other half of the stories deal with McCain criticizing U.S. Senator Bob Corker, Tennessee's most conservative senator and one of the only Members of Congress who has shown any sort of fiscal discipline in the past year, and criticizing the Tennessee Republican Party, which is headed by conservative Robin Smith and staffed with conservatives like Bill Hobbs.

Seems to me like the two are incongruent. One does not ask for help by showing how polar one is from your own views. Quite strange.
