In case there was any doubt that the McCain campaign is being run by wingnut bloggers, check out this:
Sen. John McCain’s campaign is finishing a hard-hitting television ad highlighting Barack Obama ‘s ties to shady Chicago land dealer Tony Rezko, the one-time Obama patron who was convicted earlier this summer of fraud.
A campaign official said that the decision to Go Rezko was Obama’s. “He’s opened the door to this,” the official said.
The ad will be released to network news divisions in time for their broadcasts tonight.
Though McCain is widely perceived to to drawn first blood by attacking Obama’s character, the official said that the difference between Obama’s mocking McCain for his wealth and his shaky answer on the number of homes he owns was that McCain’s charge “reflects an existential reality,” where Obama’s charges “attack Cindy. She owns the homes. I thought he said the wives were off-limits.”
Got it? When McCain can’t name how many houses he owns, it is attacking his wife to point it out.
Always the victim, these wankers.
BTW- is it elitist to discuss “existential realities?”
*** Update ***
“John McCain got a wife! A wife, motherfucker! And she owns shit! This is crazy! This shit is crazy! TONY REZKO, BITCHES!”
– Dave Chappelle, campaign spokesperson
I enjoy the “existential reality” of Obama hating America vs. the entirely off limits discussion of which of the four to thirteen mansions that McCain’s family owns are really his, as opposed to his wife’s. It’s good to see that the McCain campaign’s response to the first punch he’s caught is to go apeshit nuclear out of the gate. He may go Taxi Driver on us by the time this is said and done.
Like I said- they have two modes: asshole, and out of control asshole. I vote pushing them into the latter.
