Campaigning from the gutter
McCain’s people must be getting really desperate. The American people are smarter than this. You can’t lie about what somebody said in the age of the internet where transcripts and video recordings are readily available. And please… you don’t get points for the irony in attacking Obama for “smearing” Governor Palin using completely and undeniably out-of-context quotations. For reference, this is the quote that McCain’s ad says attack Governor Palin in a sexist manner.
“John McCain says he’s about change too, and so I guess his whole angle is, ‘Watch out George Bush — except for economic policy, health care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy and Karl Rove-style politics — we’re really going to shake things up in Washington,'” he said.
“That’s not change. That’s just calling something the same thing something different. You know you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig. You know you can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change, it’s still going to stink after eight years. We’ve had enough of the same old thing.”
How you go from that to a “sexist” attack on Governor Palin is pretty mind-blowing, even for the McCain smear-mongers.
