Politicians, Baptists, and Episcopalians

I found this note at GetReligion:
"The Associated Press is making news over presidential candidate John McCain’s statement this past weekend that he is in fact a Baptist despite comments he has made in the past that he is an Episcopalian. The news hook that the AP doesn’t come right out and tell you, other than in the dateline, is that McCain made these comments while he was in South Carolina which happens to have a lot of Baptist voters."
Considering the demographic that McCain has been pandering to lately, he would certainly want to avoid any association with the Episcopal Church.
