More evidence that that McCain’s campaign machine is run by mean, nasty, dishonest brutes who are utterly devoid of consciences.
From yesterday’s AP wire:
John McCain’s presidential campaign released a new television ad Tuesday that says Barack Obama is bad for families because he supports sex education for kindergartners. Obama’s campaign called the ad a “shameful” distortion.
The ad says Obama has a weak record on education and that his only accomplishment was legislation to teach sex education to kindergartners.
“Learning about sex before learning to read?” the ad says. “Barack Obama. Wrong on education. Wrong for your family.”
But the legislation was not Obama’s, it never became law and it would have required age-appropriate information in schools. Obama has said that means warning young children about sexual predators and explaining concepts like “good touch and bad touch.”
“It is shameful and downright perverse for the McCain campaign to use a bill that was written to protect young children from sexual predators as a recycled and discredited political attack against a father of two young girls,” Obama spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement.
If you want to watch this bullshit ad, go here.
And yes, at the end of the ad John McCain approves of the message.
Burton noted that in a recent interview with Time magazine, McCain refused to define ‘honor.’ “Now we know why,” Burton said.
UPDATE: Even Bill O’Reilly has called a foul on the McCain campaign. He says: “But the Republicans are coming across as whiny grievance-mongers. Don’t they realize that this harping on ambiguous slights is what people hate about political correctness?”
Here we go down the rabbit hole…
