The Republican smear machine has been so thorough with people who will believe anything bad about a black cat, John McCain now finds himself forced to admit that Barack Obama is “a decent person” or risk looking like a world-class creep – and it’s getting him booed by his own supporters.
On the other hand, McCain still stokes the fire with TV ads that nonsensically ask, “Who is Barack Obama?”
Where was McCain while Obama’s two books laying out his life story and beliefs became bestsellers? Has McCain missed every one of Obama’s countless interviews with every news outlet that wants one?
Oops, I almost forgot. Since he started palling around with Palin, McCain’s attitude toward the media is: Avoid them like a plague – they ask questions.
Face it, Republicans. When it comes to making Obama the anti-Christ, you’ve got nothing.
Go to any Republican rally and you’ll hear the crowd brainlessly screaming cheers like, “NoBama!” “Obama Osama!” “Terrorist!” “Bomb Obama!” and “Off with his head!” like teenagers before the big homecoming game. All Palin needs is a tight sweater and a pair of pom-poms.
At Obama or Biden’s rallies, you don’t hear people yelling “Flame McCain!” or “Impale Palin!” That would seem petty.
Fortunately, the clock is running out on McCain and Palin’s childish plays. Their strategy to win with name-calling, lies, and insults has got them running the wrong way down the field. Unless Obama shows up in a turban, pukes on McCain, or strips naked and streaks out of the final debate, it’s probably too late for McCain to turn around and score the winning touchdown.
