McCain/Palin Launch Dirty Campaign

Desperation Evident as Republicans Launch Personal Attacks

As John McCain's campaign hopes sink along with the economy, his questionably qualified Vice Presidential nominee, Sarah Palin, launched a series of attacks on the personal integrity of Barack Obama, a tactic McCain promised he would not use in this campaign. McCain decided to launch a negative campaign during the final month because, as a campaign official put it, "If we continue to talk about the economy, we lose."

Palin's attacks on Obama's so-called "relationship" with former Weatherman member, Bill Ayers, a "domestic terrorist", who never killed anyone and who was never convicted of anything and whose actions took place when Obama was 8 years old, have verged on racist as she claims that Obama "doesn't see America as you and I do".

At a rally yesterday, a crowd member screamed, "Kill Him" as Sarah laughed and cheered with the crowd. At a McCain rally, he asked, "Who is Barack Obama?" and a crowd member yelled out "Terrorist" as McCain held that silly smirk on his face. This reprehensible type of political campaigning is typical of the desperation the Republican Party finds itself in, as their numbers in the polls fall like the stock market. Here is what John McCain said about negative attack ads:
