Going Beyond Negative.

"Patriotism is the last vestige of a Scoundrel"-Samuel Johnson

While the stock market and the economy continue to tank, the McCain campaign has started a desperate smear campaign. At a Sarah Palin rally today audience member called out "Kill Him" and a McCain rally they were calling out "Terrorist" both in reference to Obama. The reason elections get to this level of stupidity, pettiness and down right hatefulness is because Joe Sixpack and his Walmart Mom do not care to have a discussion about the issues and ideas. They love a dirty fight and they want to see blood.

Tomorrow, Obama needs to call McCain out on this garbage.

Now that the McCain campaign has made abundantly clear that their only shot at salvaging this election is by going full-bore negative against Barack Obama with despicable, disgraceful and dishonorable smears, Keith responds with another great Special Comment.

"The Governor of Alaska wants to start calling people terrorists -- and insisting of Senator Obama that quote "this is not a man who sees America like you and I see America" -- and whose rhetoric like that and the "pallin' around with terrorists" line were rightly described by the Associated Press yesterday as a wolf-in-sheep's-clothing kind of way of slipping racism into the equation because it's a nifty trick to remind the white folk that (psst) Obama is black.

But overriding this sleaziness -- and dog-gone it, the Governor of Alaska has got to be the sleaziest politician working the stage at the moment -- there is the sheer blessed stupidity of letting herself become the bomb-thrower when her own life is full of domestic terrorists.

Governor -- Bill Ayres? Your hubby was in this secessionist hate group for which you recorded a video.

Governor -- Jeremiah Wright? That pastor you credit with helping you become Governor, is either a con man or a psycho who believes he can tell which woman in the village is the witch and which is the governor."
