Anti-McCain Political Ad Reaches New Low
A new ad is beginning to air from a liberal 527 organization, with the intent of damaging the John McCain campaign.
My mouth fell to the floor when I caught this a short while ago, as I flipped from Fox News to MSNBC a bit during the 7 O'clock programming... I know, my own fault there.
This is obviously one of the most despicable pieces of political advertising to which the American public has ever born witness.
Talk about the potential for counter-productive blow-back!
I know there are a lot of die-hard, staunch conservatives that probably wouldn't have considered themselves very likely to get behind John McCain with any degree of fervor 8 months ago... I can actually count myself, pretty much, as one of them in that class.
But, between some of his policy shifts to the right in recent months, his decision to place Governor Sarah Palin on the ticket, and this sort of behavior we have seen from the most vile, abhorant depths of the American left, it is hard NOT to get lock-step behind the man and fight with him tooth-and-nail!
Update: Bill O'Reilly mentioned the ad on his program and states that both Fox News and CNN turned down the ad, refusing to air it on their networks.
Further, part of the team behind the ad is James H. Dean, DNC Chairman Howard Dean's brother.
Hmmm... an independent, 527 organization, having no coordination with the Obama campaign or the Democratic Party in producing and airing such political advertisements... Yeah.
