With a month left until election day the McCain campaign announced that it's going to step up its attacks on Barack Obama.
From Straight Talk to Smear Talk. Let the smearing begin!
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Saturday slammed Sen. Barack Obama's political relationship with a former anti-war radical, accusing him of associating "with terrorists who targeted their own country."Palin was referring to an article in the NY Times about Obama's relationship with Ayers.
"Our opponent though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that he's palling around with terrorists who would target their own country."
Palin failed to mention the article
concluded that "the two men do not appear to have been close. Nor has Mr. Obama ever expressed sympathy for the radical views and actions of Mr. Ayers, whom he has called 'somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8.' "This is an extremely important election and we can't let people get away with out and out lies.
Several other publications, including the Washington Post, Time magazine, the Chicago Sun-Times, The New Yorker and The National Review, have debunked the idea that Obama and Ayers had a close relationship.
If you know anyone who's on the fence about who to vote for or is considering voting McCain/Palin, pass this post (and more to come) along to them.
