Broken Glass

News & Politics

To any sane person, the recent tactics of the McCain-Palin campaign have been nothing short of disgusting, appalling and overtly desperate. As the country (and world) plunges deeper into a economic hellhole, both John McCain and Sarah Palin have chosen to ignore the financial news and instead attack Obama via character assassination. It is truly a sad sight to behold.

Palin the Rebel Rouser

Sarah Palin's words this week have been startling. She is not even using veiled terminology. She is out and out accusing Obama of hanging with terrorists, paling around with terrorists, and why not say it - being a terrorist. She does NOT back a single thing up - she uses shoddy stories, innuendo, proven false rumors and anything she wants to (including a lot of winking) in order to press her case. She has NOT once talked about any issue that is relevant to Americans today. She talks about hate, terrorism and of course, Obama being different. Palin is painting Obama as the ultimate outsider, a man that simply cannot be trusted and someone that might actually invite al-Qaeda to dinner.

One wishes they could laugh at all these nonsense coming from a complete and total moron. But what Sarah lacks in intelligence (and trust me, a roach has more intelligence), she makes up with political and winking skills. She knows how to rouse an audience (just ask Rich Lowry about his boners). And all this is done with tacit John McCain support.
