…he breaks through the crust and keeps on going.
After a series of TV ads that are farragoes of shameless lying, Straight-Talk McCain has surpassed himself.
Let’s look at those ads, first. Three ads in two days, last week. The references are from Factcheck.org:
- Belittling Palin?
- A McCain-Palin TV ad accuses Obama of being “disrespectful” of Palin, but it distorts quotes to make the case.
- McCain-Palin Distorts Our Finding
- Those attacks on Palin that we debunked didn’t come from Obama.
- Off Base on Sex Ed
- A McCain campaign ad claims Obama’s “one accomplishment” was a bill to teach sex ed to kindergarten kids. Don’t believe it.
You’d think that false, misleading, deceptive advertisements—in which McCain repeats smears that had already been discredited when Alan Keyes used them four years ago—would take the cake.
But now, here comes some frosting for the cake. From Crooks and Liars, today:
Rovian Push Polling In Florida Links Obama To PLO

It is stories like this that make me weep for my country. When people so low, so completely divested of a moral compass, can impact an election to the detriment of the whole nation. John McCain knows only too well how these kind of sleazy, win-at-all-cost tactics work and should be the FIRST person to stand up and speak against them.
Key West resident Joelna Marcus received a phone call today. She was asked if she is Jewish, and she replied in the affirmative.
She was asked if she was religious.
She was then asked if her opinion of Barack Obama would change if she knew that Obama had given lots and lots of money to the PLO.
There are no perjoratives strong enough to describe the kind of slimeball that would do this.
