Bill CunninghamBill Cunningham, the Ohio talk radio host whose remarks about Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama were deemed too "caustic" by the nation's media and John McCain is speaking out against the Arizona senator now.

"John McCain threw me under a bus -- under the Straight Talk Express," he told CNN in an interview, referring to McCain's pretentiously named campaign bus.

Cunningham also said that he regretted the fact that McCain was on track to become the Republican nominee.

"I've had it up to here with John McCain. I'm joining Ann Coulter in supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton" over McCain since the latter "ought to attack Democrats and quit attacking conservatives like me."

Cunningham also defended his decision to repeatedly reference Obama's middle name Hussein:

"I have nothing but respect for my Muslim brothers and sisters," he said. "The ones who oppose that particular name, they're the ones with the problem, not me. His name is Barack Hussein Obama."
