During presidential candidate John McCain's visit to New Orleans yesterday, reporters asked him about Pastor John Hagee's statements that Hurricane Katrina was God's judgment against New Orleans for a gay pride parade. While Hagee has endorsed McCain -- an endorsement McCain has said he's glad to have -- the Arizona Senator wants to make it clear that he does not endorse Hagee's remarks. Here's what he had to say:

"It's nonsense, it's nonsense, it's nonsense, it's nonsense, it's nonsense. I don't have anything additional to say. It's nonsense, it's nonsense, it's nonsense, I don't have anything more to say....it's nonsense. I reject that categorically."

But McCain's rejection of Hagee's Katrina comments didn't stop him from getting in a dig at Sen. Barack Obama's relationship with the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who by the way will be the guest tonight on the PBS show Bill Moyers Journal. Asked about whether commenting on surrogates and endorsers is interfering with the campaign, McCain answered:

I didn't attend Pastor Hagee's church for 20 years. There's a great deal of difference in my view between someone who endorses you and other circumstances.
