Apocalyptic preacher John Hagee says McCain is "on target"

Sarah Posner: McCain meets with the approval of the Texas televangelist who foresees war with Iran and Armageddon in the Middle East.
Here's an under-the-radar news item likely to light a fire under my friend Cliff Schecter and the folks at The Real McCain. John Hagee reports that he had an "extended breakfast" with John McCain, during which they discussed Israel policy and McCain's presidential candidacy. Hagee happily reports that McCain is "solidly pro-Israel."

What else did the duo discuss? In an e-mail, Hagee tells his supporters and the leadership of Christians United for Israel: "We discussed [McCain's] positions on other matters that I will share with you when I speak with you in person. This newsflash goes to the ends of the earth and I don't want to read it in the media tomorrow."
