John McCain gets another little dig in at the press tonight, even at an event about fighting cancer.
The summit in Columbus, Ohio, is hosted by Lance Armstrong, the six-time winner of the Tour de France, the biggest race in cycling.
"You have billed this event as a presidential town hall, and I sincerely hope that the next president is here today," McCain said, according to prepared remarks issued by his campaign.
"My opponent, of course, is traveling in Europe, and tomorrow his tour takes him to France. In a scene Lance would recognize, a throng of adoring fans awaits Senator Obama in Paris -- and that's just the American press."
The McCain campaign has complained publicly and often that the media is enthralled by Obama, resulting in unequal and unfair coverage of the campaign.
