McCain hits the sewers.

It's the ad he recently promised not to run after all, but I suppose desperate times call for desperate measures.

McCain knows this isn't true, but he doesn't care. He knows that negative campaigning is unpopular, but he feels that he has no choice. On all of the issues he is losing. After all, he's fighting to prolong an unpopular war in the midst of an economic crisis. It's utter madness, but those are the grounds on which McCain has chosen to run for the presidency.

His campaign is tanking because his policies are toxic. So he now sets out to redefine Obama as someone that Americans "don't really know." It's ridiculous.


The notion that people don’t know who I am is a little hard to swallow. I’ve been running for president for the last two years. I’ve campaigned in 49 states. Millions of people have heard me speak at length on every topic under the sun. I’ve been involved now in 25 debates, going on my 26th. And I’ve written two books which any — everybody who reads them will say are about as honest a set of reflections by, at least, a politician as are out there.

McCain once said he's rather lose an election than lose a war. He's proving himself more than willing to lose his integrity in a pathetic attempt not to lose this election.

This is not a man of honour. This is a politician prepared to peddle smears and lies.

Obama was eight years old when Ayers was taking part in the actions which Obama later condemned.

Eight years old. There's really nothing left to say about that. The attack is that pathetic.

And Olbermann has already shown how McCain fares when that same standard is applied to him and his associates.
