Let me get this straight.
- McCain announces that he will begin personal attacks on Obama.
- McCain then makes good on that promise.
- Obama then accuses McCain of smears.
- McCain says they are all “true facts” (as opposed to “misleading facts,” or “true lies,” or just “lies”).
Was the McCain strategy (or tactic? I obviously don’t know the difference) to tell us in advance that he was going to be throwing mud so we wouldn’t be so disgusted when it happened?
For those who “just can’t vote for Obama” for whatever reason, you have my condolences that McCain is your only other viable option.
10/7 UPDATE: Obama throws back a few whoppers of his own. I’m going to go crawl into a hole. Are we all just resigned to the fact that our leaders are dishonest?
