McCain blames Obama.
John McCain, aware as he is of the Internet, has launched a new ad. Over a picture of Barack Obama, with a banner reading Factcheck.org. “completely false”…”misleading.” he compares Democrats to a wolfpack trying to tear down Governor Palin.
Here’s what Factcheck.org actually says:
We’ve been flooded for the past few days with queries about dubious Internet postings and mass e-mail messages making claims about McCain’s running mate, Gov. Palin. We find that many are completely false, or misleading.
Yes, indeed! There are some anonymous posts in comment threads on message boards that are not completely accurate! There are anonymous emails that are downright scurrilous!
Not that we haven’t heard more, and worse, about Obama, Hillary, and any other Democrat. The Republicans are no strangers to scurrilous, anonymous emails. It’s Okay If You’re A Republican. (IOKIYAR.)
There’s no reason to think that the slanders and smears are coming from Obama. For all anyone knows they’re coming from Republican operatives who are playing their own game to draw attention away from McCain.
Shall we talk about completely false and misleading? Let’s talk about another one of McCain’s ads, one that claims Obama voted to teach comprehensive sex education to kindergarten kids. That one came out with the voiceover, “I’m John McCain and I approve this message.”
